A journey through Mumbai, is an experimental film about the differences in architecture and culture in the richest city of India. A place where two buildings can stand side by side and tell the stories of two cites. But instead of a commentary on the subject, this film invites the viewer to draw their own conclusions by watching still photography and the moving image of these constructs, and draw upon their own emotional responses unhindered by another persons perceptions.

 

Director Statement 
With this film, we set out to do something very different to our prior short films. We intended to let the audience tell their own story, to perceive through the images and sounds of Mumbai, what is important to them.

It is a journey, not just thorough India’s Economic heartland, a City where Poverty and Grandeur sit side by side. It was our objective to make this a journey of the self, where the viewer’s perceptions, knowledge, prejudices, hopes and dreams, would create a meaningful and unique experience for that person.

So we invite you, to perceive, to feel, to tell your own story. The Story. A journey through Mumbai. But more importantly, a journey of your on devising, those meanings and symbols only you could know.
