Original Copy | Dirs. Florian Heinzen-Zio & Georg Heinzen | India | 2015 | 1hr 35
It’s another hot day in Mumbai and like every day the fans are whirling in the Alfred Talkies – a B-Movie cinema – and literally behind the screen as the drama plays out Sheikh Rehman and his crew are creating original copies. Operating in the workshop manner of ‘old masters’ they hand paint huge publicity banners in oils for Bollywood films …only to paint over them 7 days later. An ode to the passions of cinema, art and life in a declining industry.
