Filmmakers Ridley Scott and Anurag Kashyap have never wanted for ambition and their latest film is proof.
‘India in a Day’ is India’s biggest ever crowd-sourced feature film and does what it says on the tin – chart the life of the world’s most diverse and vibrant nation over a 24-hour period.
Produced by Scott and Kashyap, directed by the acclaimed Indo-Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta and backed by web giant Google, ‘India in a Day’ strings together footage from thousands of videos made by ordinary Indians.
The film is a result of a contest that asked participants to film their lives on October 10, 2015, and upload their videos to a Google website.
16,000 were eventually uploaded. The edited-down 90-minute final version releases in India today.
The film is the fifth instalment in a series which charts the day in the life of one nation – a series that has already taken in the UK, Japan, Spain and Italy.
