When you think of India, you think color and cacophony. But cast in black and white, set to orchestral music and overlaid with historic narrations, she reveals another side of herself.
The work of Rishi Kaneria, “While The World Sleeps” features the speeches of independent India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, Hans Zimmer’s “Journey to the Line” (which you may recognize from The Thin Red Line film score) and footage shot in Haridwar, Uttarakhand. The city, which sits along the River Ganges, is considered one of the seven holiest Hindu places. If you’re looking to make your own pilgrimage, Ananda In the Himalayas, a former palace, is in nearby Narendra Nagar.
