A Filmmaker Traveled For Months To Make A Time-Lapse Video Breaking Stereotypes About India
"I want to change the conventional perception of what India is, beyond the bullock carts and snake charmers," Arjun Menon told BuzzFeed.
Arjun Menon, a 25-year-old filmmaker currently living in Mumbai, is on a mission to change the world's perceptions of India.
In order to make this video, Arjun travelled India for 4 months and collected over 2 million images.
During his travels, Arjun had had the opportunity to explore India like few others have, from living with monks for 9 days at a monastery in Spiti Valley, to sleeping under the stars in Gette – one of the highest villages in the world.
"As I entered the industry, I was bombarded by images and visuals which lead us to follow a stereotype, those with bullock carts, snake charmers and poverty all around," he said.
