"My fanboy moment. Inspiring to hear Nolan and Tacita Dean talk of the virtues of celluloid as an artist's medium", SRK wrote. Was surprised to know he had seen Paapanaasam. He tweeted, "Met Mr Christopher Nolan".
According to a well-placed source, the director, who has lent his creative vision to bring forward immersive stories like "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight", "The Dark Knight Rises", "Inception", "Interstellar" and "Dunkirk", was in the national capital for three-four days, and left for Mumbai on March 29. Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan is also the part of this event, which is being hosted by Indian filmmaker and archivist Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, who hopes that Nolan's presence and words will influence people to participate in a culture of film preservation.
Well, a very warm welcome to India Mr. Nolan.
And as Tacita (panelist) said, it isn't really about Film versus digital.it's about preserving this medium for future generation of filmmaking to be able to use it. Nolan is known to be working with film reels through out his career and made two and a half hour film called Interstellar entirely on the film reel.
A roundtable discussion is also planned with prominent personalities of the Indian film industry to be attended by Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Haasan, Shyam Benegal and others. Film Heritage Foundation, which works towards the saving and restoring the film heritage of India and neighbouring countries has partnered with Nolan and Dean to raise awareness in India. To make up for it, he said he would be offering Nolan a digital version of " Hey Ram".
