Experiencing Interruptions?

Chandigarh: UNESCO's Heritage City Entering an Entropic State

Chandigarh, a city intended to be the face of independent India, finds its way to be recognized by UNESCO but fails to get its fair share of respect from the residents, daily commuters, and tourists.

The documentary tells the story and ideology behind this first planned city in India with an attempt to invoke passion and empathy for the same. While exploring what all challenges its soul and identity in contemporary and future times.

The documentary was deliberately filmed in particular angles which emphasize on the portrayal of space, light, order, and proportion of the buildings. This was done in accordance to highlight the ideology of its planner, Le Corbusier, which you will find out after watching... 

I hope you enjoy my first ever documentary which may have fair-few flaws as the journey of a content creator is all about pulchritudinous flaws and tragic perfections. Though, I wish the message I tried to communicate through this medium will be received as originally aspired by me.
