Bergman compared cinema to gothic cathedrals; you walk into a cathedral and you wonder how they were able to do it. This is what we felt when we were looking at these cinemas. The people running them don’t have great equipment or technology, and they’re carrying these heavy machines on their shoulders and piling everything up in a truck and traveling hundreds of miles. Of course this tradition will change and eventually be lost for good, but we wanted to look at it through the lens of mythology. Why not take a look at it while it’s in its most glorious form?
