This short film compiles three weeks of filming, traveling and eating in India into a single day.
It is hard to put down your camera in India. With so much beauty and filth, food and poverty, happiness and stress, it is an overwhelming (and wonderful) place to film. The directors returned exhausted, full and overwhelmed – this time with the task of editing all the footage into a short work. Because India is such a big place, and each area varies dramatically, the filmmakers attempted to construct a day across India: from north to south, from dawn till dusk.
