The result is a lyrical representation of a single day in India.

Most of the footage came from a certain demographic.

“An interesting aspect of this film is nobody from what you and I would call the economically wealthy class submitted a scrap of footage for this film. It was all coming from what we would label as the middle class, lower middle class, labour class in a way. So you look at that and the thousands of submissions that came in – I can’t help but think at the risk of generalising who was it that had something to say and never had that vehicle to say it before?”
