Amrita TV Re-discovers A Continent
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI: Hello Americas, Amrita TV’s new travelogue, that incorporates some elements of the lifestyle show, chronicles the travels of the crew as they globe-trot across the breadth of the American Continent; telecast every Sunday at 8.30 pm, it weaves together colorful individual strands - of sights seen, stories heard, realities understood - picked along the way, to create a complete pattern of the American way of life .

The team started out on their exploratory expedition on a blistering cold day in early January to record the Winter Edition of Hello Americas. It was an America muffled to the ears in snow, with the barometer hovering around a bone-numbing cold – 30 degrees.

The crew captured scenes and sights along the route – of Ice Fishing, snowmobiling, what it feels to be inside an igloo - wending their way from coast to coast – from New York the Global City, melting pot of all the Nationalities of the world; the City of Columbia in California where Cowboy towns are still preserved in their pristine state, as it was 150 years ago ; Detroit, synonym of the American Automobile Industry ; Los Angeles, the home base of Hollywood, the world’s most thickly populated celebrity neighborhood; the Golden Gym on the ‘Muscle Beach’ stretch of Venice Beach where Arnold Schwarzenegger, the film icon comes for his work out .


They halted every now and then to have first hand encounters with the citizens both American and Indian American , that threw up surprising insights of the Other Side of The United States – of rock solid family ties that rival those of the East; of sacrifices undertaken by a devoted wife who moved to successive smaller and smaller homes to put her husband through Medical school ; of the Central Kitchen that feeds over 5000 homeless poor a day in Washington D.C, the Capital of the richest nation in the world.

During the course of their travel, Amrita TV saw an America that bore little similarity to the one portrayed in the slick soap operas and the blockbusters of Hollywood, which focuses only the world of the rich and the glamorous and of life in the fast lane. Hello Americas presents glimpses of a different America - one built on principled value systems and strong familial bonds that revealed the warm, inner, real self throbbing beneath the surface glitter and glitz.

A montage of diverse, unconnected images of ways, traditions and customs which splice themselves together to form a complete film of the American life and culture, Hello Americas is in effect a journey of re-discovery of a continent .
