HORN PLEASE

Director: Shantanu Suman, Istling Mirche
India | 31mins | 2013 | World Premiere

Synopsis: Horn Please is a documentary that encapsulates various aspects of an age-old folk art form of India, the Truck Art, an art form that makes journeys through the dusty highways of India, incredible in more ways than one. With a kaleidoscope of bright paints, motifs, typography and unique couplets, these Indian trucks take you on a rather colorful journey of diverse cultures and beliefs of the country.
This documentary focuses on the origin of truck art and how it influences not just the world of art, but also the lives of its artists and the truckers who interact with it on a daily basis. Largely, it investigates on whether the once-accepted art form will survive the test of time in this era of capitalism.
