A warm and inspiring immigrant story.

I was worried that The Projectionist would be another dirge about the end of an era, but it's Ferrara's light touch and likable subject that make it so much more.

The Projectionist is not so much a hidden history of the movies as one that shines a light on an underground culture, fighting for survival, then and now.
