INDIA is a short film about the contrasts and beauty of India, told within the context of two men as they travel to visit temples, the Himalayas, mountain lakes, spiritual festivals, and the ocean. To me, India is a paradox, a land of both great beauty and of great poverty. Perhaps nowhere in the world are the extremes of the human condition on display in such a soul-piercing way. The paradoxical mood is framed by the mysterious and evocative music of Suraj Nepal.
