Chasing the Bullet - a Royal Enfield Documentary
Chasing The Bullet is Chris Zahner's maiden film that explores India's relationship with the Royal Enfield Bullet. A Guerrilla Filmmaking effort shot over 13 months, his quest to understand the madness behind this decades old bond took him across the length and breadth of the nation. A chance meeting led to Chris and I discussing the possibility of wrapping up the film in the High Himalayas in the ancient Tibetan valleys of Lahaul and Spiti. A month in the mountains and some incredible first hand experiences of the two machines pitted against each other and against the environment crystallized our belief in the machine: "The more we try to explain it, the more there is logic that seems to fail. The feeling can only be explained as is, an illogical yet seemingly rewarding love affair".
