Renowned Canadian director Sturla Gunnarson reveals how India’s vast seasonal weather system shapes the lives of the country’s billion-plus inhabitants.
Filmed across all of India, he follows the monsoon’s path as it gradually engulfs every region of the country, and introduces the individuals affected by it – meteorologists, bookies, farmers, conservationists, families, and ordinary Mumbai citizens. As nature, science, humanity and wonder converge in one of the most astonishing and breathtaking landscapes on earth, Monsoon captures all the drama as it unfolds.
