Take a first look at India In A Day!

On October 10, we invited every Indian to film a day in their lives and tell us how the Internet and technology are changing every aspect of life in India. We’ve received over 8,000 submissions amounting to hundreds of hours of footage, and are in the process of selecting the best entries from those for the full-length film. Meanwhile, here’s a first look at India In A Day.

This video, which previewed during Sundar Pichai’s keynote at Google For India, focuses on how technology is helping transform India. It tells the stories of three people: the lone English-speaker in a village untouched by the Internet; a WiFi user without a connection of his own; and a young man who has begun developing mobile apps amidst the lush green rice fields of Kerala.

Executive-produced by Ridley Scott and Anurag Kashyap, directed by Richie Mehta, supported by Zoya Akhtar, R. Balki and Shekhar Kapur, and filmed by you, India In A Day premieres in 2016.
