Mahesh Shantaram has been documenting the weddings of the Indian upper class for many years through his subjective photography.
MATRIMANIA follows him across the country during the wedding season to meet and get to know a part of India that is rarely seen in the West. Co-directed with Vincent Bitaud.
This feature documentary (83’) takes its name from Shantaram’s photo series Matrimania (photo below taken from the series).
