The George Eastman Museum has recently acquired the world’s largest collection of contemporary Indian cinema held by a museum or film archive. The collection consists of 775 prints representing 597 film titles, all in 35mm format, made between 1999 and 2013. A large number of film posters were also acquired as part of the collection.
Stories of Indian Cinema will shed light on the intriguing story behind the Eastman Museum's acquisition of this collection, and will feature a selection of posters and films in the main galleries and at the Dryden Theatre.
