Pankaj Mishra and Arundhati Roy have both spoken by now about the election results in India and if you are a Modi voter, you are likely not too happy with their views.

Thinkpot Productions write on their Facebook Page
This film is an inspiring story of a person who holds a unique achievement, that sets him apart from other citizens of India. Shot in the beautiful location of Kalpa, in Kinnaur, HP, among adverse conditions and daunting challenges, this film captures one man’s persistent effort and complete belief in the system of democracy.

Shot over three days, in temperatures of -6 degrees, the challenge was in getting Masterji to recreate his historical journey. We were pleasantly surprised to see his zeal and enthusiasm in helping us tell the story in as exciting a manner as possible.
