Tribeca 2021 - 'Audience Award' Winner (2nd Place)
A mischievous nine-year-old boy, Samay, gets into the habit of visiting the rundown local movie theater, against his father’s wishes. Without the money to attend, he strikes up a deal with the laissez-faire projectionist, who welcomes him into the projection booth in exchange for home-cooked meals.
Samay’s fascination with movies inspires him and his friends to start their own secret screening operation, but when the 35mm theater’s future is threatened , they must struggle to maintain their new connection to cinema.
NOTE: This film is playing only in theaters.
"an ethereal take on the magic of movies"
"revels in the liberation of a childlike point-of-view."
