Welcome to Mumbai
Finally, after a long time, I have gotten the chance to splice the whole material I collected on my trip to India.
I would like to emphasise, however, that I am a photographer and not filmmaker, but I have given my best shot to make it as enjoyable as possible for you. For those of you, who have never been to India, you will definitively get a feel for how it was like since I had my GoPro run along during the time that I captured pictures in order to bring you even closer to the people.
Lean yourself back with a cup of Chai Tee or whatever is good for you and if you liked it feel free to share it with your virtual or real friends. Don’t let the first minutes deceive you!film of the month. @ Berlinale Open Screening (13.March.2017).
If you‘re not enchanted by India, you might be a lost cause. Okay, either you love it or you hate it, but I‘d go back there any time. In Mumbai I could shoot pictures from Indian daily life which (should) inspire you to think. While walking through the dark streets of Mumbai on my first evening in the city, I met a young man named Dhaval – lucky me.
By sheer coincidence we took the same direction and started to chat. Eventually, he offered me to show me around the city. I happily accepted, but under one condition: Only places where you find locals, but no tourists. Dhaval agreed.
So here we go…
