One Crazy Ride, an Indian documentary on a motorcycle expedition across uncharted Himalayan roads in Arunachal Pradesh, has made it to the Wisconsin Film Festival (WFF).
Said to be the largest campus-based festival in USA, WFF is slated from April 14-18 in state capital Madison.
In its 12th year, WFF, organized by University of Wisconsin–Madison, presents a broad range of independent American and world cinema (narrative, documentary, experimental, shorts), restorations and revivals, and locally made pictures.
Meg Hamel is the festival director while Allen Ebert is operations director.
Directed by Gaurav Jani, One Crazy Ride is 87 minutes long and is in Hindi. It follows a motorcycle expedition on uncharted roads in Arunachal Pradesh.
“It is a film about camaraderie, friendship and never-say-die attitude of five motorcyclists in unforgiving terrain and it attempts to capture the experiences and interactions of riders trying to chart a route,” said Jani.
The documentary is produced by Dirt Track Productions, and its music is by Ved Nair while Kishore Jadhav is the editor.
Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement from Nevada, US, congratulated the makers of One Crazy Ride. “India’s government and various film bodies should promote independent cinema and help arrange funding for various such ventures,” he said.
Zed is the chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation.
