The bygone era of cinema, its many ups and downs, intricacies and failings, lives on in the memories of those who experienced them. These memories have now become a valuable resource for unearthing many submerged histories. In this episode of the Cinema Memory Project, Cinemaazi welcomes former lecturer at Scottish Church College, noted writer and critic, Ranjan Bandopadhyay, who remembers growing up amidst a vibrant cinema culture, his experience as a film critic and what set the cinema of the past apart from the present.
