Riding On a Sunbeam
No matter what you say about India, the exact opposite is also true. This film captures the contradictions of India in a month-long backpacking trip across three dimensions: social norms, economic development, and above all, a sense of national unity. We explore these contrasts by visiting ten key places; socially liberal vs. conservative, economically advanced vs. backwards, and staunchly nationalistic vs. fiercely independent areas, etc. The contrasts are analyzed through the eyes of an Indian guy who has traveled the world and an American girl who is visiting India for the first time.
