SHORT FILM: AN IDEA OF US

In February 2014, I went on a mostly solo, four-week backpacking trip from Mumbai to Kolkata, Varanasi (Benaras), Lucknow, Harsil (near Gangotri), Mussoorie, Mcleodganj, Delhi, Jodhpur and Udaipur. You can read travelogues from my trip here.

I shot random footage of people and places along the way. After coming back, I wrote a script that used many of the not-too-bad shots as metaphors to illustrate what it means for me to be an Indian in India. Over four years, my friends worked off and on to put it all together. Here it is.

Please use headphones. Select Closed Captions (CC) for subtitles.
