You are considered to be a traditionalist who continues to support film as an art form, while your movies are quite futuristic.

She stressed that we should stop talking about film versus digital and start talking about film plus digital. But it's not. No film is illogical or pragmatic. "But filmmaking is not just about logic and pragmatism, it is about dreams, magic and experience", said Nolan on Saturday. You have to embrace your emotions and feelings whether you want to work that way or not.

On the debate between celluloid and digital, Nolan explained that the emphasis is on co-existence. "Interstellar was never shown like this and we are excited to show like this to all of you", Nolan said. Whether they then choose analogue or digital depends on how they want to tell their story but they can not be denied the right to choose.

Filmmaker-archivist Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, who is hosting Nolan for all the three days, hopes the director's trip to India will draw attention to the cause of film preservation and restoration.

Christopher Nolan will also be screening his two films, Interstellar and Dunkirk at 35 mm and 70 mm in the city.

".It is exciting for us to see Indian audience see the film this way". We want to see celluloid films as a strict medium and not as technology that is being replaced by digital. And of us, who work in this profession and see different formats every day, most of the people I talk to fully understand it. What is exciting about meeting people from Indian film industry is that there is a spirit of optimism, films having wonderful future.

You can not miss a chance to meet Christopher Nolan when you know he is in your town.

Asked about what made him stop using social media, Nolan said: "Well, I really don't have to think about Facebook".

"We are fighting a battle to save celluloid films in India", Dungarpur stated. "People are not realising the importance of celluloid", he said. "We are trying to preserve for future generations the history of films, especially the way the film-makers originally meant to make the films", he said.
