Shivendra Singh Dungarpur

Shivendra Singh Dungarpur has directed about 400 commercials for top advertising agencies. Dungarpur is deeply committed to the preservation and restoration of cinema. He travels all over India searching out old film prints and film memorabilia to preserve and is actively campaigning with contemporary filmmakers to archive their film prints. He facilitated the restoration of the 1948 Indian classic Kalpana by Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Foundation which premiered in the Cannes Classic section in 2012. Celluloid Man is his first feature-length documentary.
