Celluloid Man is a portrait of a man so in love with cinema that even his family had to take a backseat to his obsession. Mr. P.K. Nair, the founder of the National Film Archive of India is a living breathing museum of cinema. The fact that India has a cinematic heritage at all is the singlehanded achievement of this man.

Forget Batman or Superman, Mr Nair is a true hero of cinema. He has spent years archiving Indian cinema, finding and preserving films that many thought were long lost. If more countries had people like him the world of cinema would be a better place, and less cinematic secrets would have been lost forever.
