A BROAD TRIP
Cinematic thali: an informative road movie in northern india or the stake of the implantation of a road network on the local people
A BROAD TRIP
We are three French students, knowing each other since our childhood and sharing the love of aventure and travelling. It is after a short trip in northern Indian that flourished in our mind the idea of makig a documentary displaying an original topic taking the innovating shape of a road movie.
In a globalized world we will focus on the most basic communicative instrument invented by mankind, i.e. roads. We will follow the ones build by a governemental Indian company, the Border Road Organisation, that works in the dyadic and most remote regions of India. Through a road trip of more than 6 000 miles from the Burma border to the Pakistani one, we will interest ourselves on the many problematic that such network reveals. From its strategic role in the border conflicts that oppose India to Pakistan or China to its economis implication on the population living by it, we will try to present a global vision of the multiple repercussions that such network implies. It is by rubbing shoulders with the local people that we will answer those questions. A BROAD TRIP is, firstly, a journey of sharing.
If the road movie is the core of our adventure we will also use the many modern tools that the Internet povides to tell our story. Thus, we will be present of Facebook and Twitter and will also post articles on a blog and have our own website where our project will be presented explicitly.
