SCRATECHES ON CELLULOID

Directed by TIMOTHY P.A. COOPER | 50' | United Kingdom

Hello

Synopsis

Exploring the institution of the urban cinema amidst amnesia and remembrance.

In the widely separated cities of Jaffna and Lahore, cinema halls have been similarly resilient over times of insurgency, war and infrastructural breakdown. Through extensive ethnographic research, the film explores the built heritage of urban cinemas against the backdrop of state-enforced amnesia and the collective attempt to remember, how exclusion and belonging are forged.
