Horn Please is a colorful, lively, 30-minutes documentary by graphic designer Shantanu Suman that explores the folk art of Indian truck decoration, which can be also found in neighbour countries like Nepal and Pakistan.
From the project's website:
"Horn Please is a documentary film that encapsulates various aspects of the Indian Truck art, an art form that makes journeys through the dusty highways of India, incredible in more ways than one. This documentary film focuses on the origin and evolution of truck art, and how it influences not just the world of art, but also the lives of its artists and the truckers who interact with it on a daily basis. At its heart, Horn Please investigates, whether this traditional art as a unique form of expression, will survive the modern day demands of the Industry."
