Video and Narrative contributed by Banibrata Mukhopadhyay, Kolkata, West Bengal

The passion of film fans and collectors preserve memories and objects often deemed useless, which accrue tremendous archival value over time. In this episode of Cinema Memory Project we welcome Banibrata Mukhopadhyay, a superfan of Satyajit Ray who started collecting film memorabilia out of the grief of Ray’s passing. He speaks about his growing up in a cinema culture, his journey as a fan and collector and offers a peek into his treasure trove of magazines, LPs and books.
