Eclipse

This short journeys through India's economic capital, Mumbai (Bombay), contrasting portraits of people who live on the streets with the natural beauty that surrounds them.

'Eclipse' is a visually based film inspired by the likes of Baraka, Koyaanisqatsi and most recently Samsara. Featuring stunning images and a hypnotic musical score, there are no actors, or any dialogue, only real people and their environment.
