Christopher Nolan to visit India to launch Kodak facility, says Amitabh Bachchan in his blog

The ‘Dunkirk’ director is known for using the traditional film format for his movies.

Acclaimed director Christopher Nolan is scheduled to visit India for the launch of a facility by the imaging products company Kodak, Amitabh Bachchan wrote in a blog post.

“Kodak, that largest name for film, is coming back,” the Bollywood actor wrote. “Many in the world of direction and production are finding values in the product done on film to be the more liked subject. So, like Dunkirk, the film by that renowned Christopher Nolan (who) uses only film for his picture. And in a month or so, the man himself Mr Nolan is coming to India to inaugurate or at least lend support to a few matters.”

Nolan has not confirmed the reports about his India visit.

The actor said the launch will mark the revival of the use of film stock for cinematography. Nolan is a known proponent of using celluloid instead of digital-only formats.

Nolan’s Dunkirk (2017), a war film depicting the Dunkirk evacuation of World War II, was reportedly shot on large format film. It is the highest-grossing World War II film of all time, earning $525 million at the global box-office.

Nolan had last visited India when he was shooting in Jodhpur in Rajasthan for The Dark Knight Rises (2012), the final movie in his Batman trilogy. In 2014, a post on Facebook by Indian Institute of Technology’s cultural festival Mood Indigo had announced that the director would be visiting the country to speak at the event. However, Nolan’s representative had informed The Hollywood Reporter that the director was unaware of the event and had no plans to attend it. The organisers later apologised for the post.
