Since March 24th, India has been locked down. A silent nation lay eerie and empty before an invisible threat. On March 25th Bharatbala and a devoted team of 117 set out to document this unprecedented time in the history of Independent India. The result is Uthenge Hum. A commemoration of the India Lockdown, a record of the collective human experience of the world’s most populous democracy. The story of 1.3 billion Indians.
On 31st May 2020 India emerges from a strange time – yet the country must move forward. On 31st May 2020 India must rise up again.
Uthenge Hum India’s first pan India filming of the lockdown, premieres 31st May 2020 nationwide.
