The film follows Salim Muhammad, a 55-year-old man who lives in Kolkata with his wife and children. Since the age of ten he's supported himself by screening discarded film scraps for area children using a hand-cranked projector that he inherited from his father. A businessman as well as a cinephile, Salim runs his projector with his sons hoping that they will carry on this tradition.
Salim Baba was co-produced by Ropa Vieja Films and Paradox Smoke Productions, with a grant from the Urban Arts Initiative and financial support from the Independent Feature Project. The film was presented as part of Maryland Film Festival's Opening Night shorts program on the evening of May 1, 2008.
