India’s “One Crazy Ride” Makes It To Wisconsin Film Festival

“One Crazy Ride” documentary of India has made it to the Wisconsin Film Festival, said to be the largest campus-based festival in USA, to be held April 14 to 18 in state capital Madison.

In its 12th year, the Festival, 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, 87 minutes long “One Crazy Ride” in Hindi is a motorcycle expedition on uncharted roads on Himalayas in Arunachal Pradesh state of India. It is stated to be 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. Produced by Dirt Track Productions, its music is provided by Ved Nair while Kishore Jadhav is the editor.

Congratulating makers of “One Crazy Ride”, Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed has urged India’s Government and various film bodies to promote independent cinema and help arrange funding for various such ventures. India had the talent, and with proper push, it could develop more Satyajit Rays, Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation, added.
