Captured in gorgeous, ultra high-definition 4K video, Sturla Gunnarsson’s documentary profiles not just expert meteorologists but also farmers, fishermen, city dwellers and even bookies — real citizens whose lives, rain or shine, are profoundly affected by the monsoons.

By treating this natural phenomenon with the respect it commands, this Canada’s Top Ten audience award–winner becomes an epic journey into a phenomenon many call “the soul of India.”

With swells of music by the Bombay Dub Orchestra, Monsoon is wet, wild and utterly astonishing.
