Monsoon is a feature documentary from multiple award-winning filmmaker Sturla Gunnarsson. Filmed over the course of India's 2013 monsoon season in ultra high definition 4K, the filmmakers chased the monsoon on its annual journey from the southern state of Kerala, where it first makes landfall, to India's north-eastern state of Meghalaya ('Place of the Clouds), where the clouds go to die. Along the way, they meet a remarkable group of individuals whose lives are in different ways entwined with the phenomenon that some call 'the soul of India'.

A cinematic journey into the terrain where nature, science, belief and wonder converge in one of the most astonishing and breathtaking landscapes on earth, Monsoon is a film that captures the timelessness and rich human drama of our engagement with the natural world.
