Ridley Scott & Anurag Kashyap Invite You To Send Footage For ‘India In A Day’
5 October 2015
English director and producer Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) has teamed up with homegrown filmmaker Anurag Kashyap (Dev D., Ugly) for a very unique project that aims to capture a day in India through the eyes of its people. Its official Facebook page states that ‘India In A Day’ will be presented by Google, directed by Richie Mehta and “filmed by You”
The team wants to create a portrait of evolving India using footage shot on 10 October by the people residing within its borders. They’re inviting absolutely anyone to send in what they shoot, advising that the perspective of the video be as personal as possible.
This is Scott's sixth “In a Day” film. It began in 2011 with “Life in a Day,” directed by Kevin Macdonald, continued with “Britain in a Day” (2012), directed by Morgan Matthews, “Japan in a Day” (2012), directed by Philip Martin, “Christmas in a Day” (2013), directed by Macdonald, and “Italy in a Day” (2014), directed by Gabriele Salvatores.
“Help us capture how India is rapidly changing: what can you do today that you couldn't five years ago? What do you hope for? What would you like to change or achieve?
Together we'll create a truly special film. From the ordinary to the extraordinary, the personal to the profound; we'll capture a moment of time as seen by thousands of people, all across India.” From the ‘India In A Day’ website.
