Hélène Kessous, anthropologist and specialist in Indian cinema, and Julien Rousseau, curator of the Asian collections atMusée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac discuss the living traditions of travelling storytellers, traditional dances, shadow theatres, and magic lanterns as they take you through a journey in time.
