Experience the sights and sounds of India, captured in just 2 minutes

With over a billion residents and covering over a million square miles of diverse landscapes, from the world’s tallest mountains in the north to palm tree-lined beaches in the south, India is a difficult nation to sum up. Perhaps this is why filmmaker Jorgo Kokkinidis offers just a “taste” of the nation in his new film. While plenty of travel logs and documentaries have a tendency to label themselves as the definitive or “official” look at a place, “A Taste of India” does not attempt to summarize the subcontinent. Instead, we are invited to be pleasantly bowled over by a montage of just a handful of India’s infinite sounds and images.
