Tanmay Chowdhary directs a poignant promo for Young The Giant.The dreamlike concept explores aspiration, family and sacrifice, in a beautiful series of multiformat vignettes. The use of vintage homemade footage and crisp, contemporary setups highlights the themes of the visual, and creates a thought-provoking contrast throughout. "The film is an experimental interlace of hyperrealities - all of which merge through the brown gaze on the pursuit of the American Dream, reflecting and questioning the journey away from the roots," explains Tanmay Chowdhary. "Flowing between the timelines of VHS footage captured by Sameer’s father - documenting his life from a baby to an adult - and dreamlike recreations of portraits of the South Asian diaspora on the shores of the abandoned Salton Sea, the film is a homage to the sacrifices made by first generation immigrants who moved West to provide a better future for their families."The film was created by an all-brown cast and crew, and it was the first time we experienced that in America."
