The Quint forays into documentary making with film on UP


MUMBAI: The Quint has forayed into the space of documentary film making with The Wild West of Uttar Pradesh ? Rise of Radical Hindu Vigilante Groups.

The main idea behind foraying into such a documentary is to unearth news that is underground.

The Quint will travel to the interiors of western Uttar Pradesh to meet members of these groups, their sympathisers and young Hindu recruits who are being trained and indoctrinated in this emerging brand of religious extremism.

Speaking about the proposition The Quint CEO Ritu Kapur said, ?The QuintDocu will have a raw, gritty, provocative feel. It will be up-close, intimate, honest and un-filtered. Our documentaries will have energy, pace; we pack in a lot in a short time. We believe we are addressing an audience that is well-informed and knows how to ?join the dots?. We will also publish related opinion pieces written by The Quint?s top-notch contributors; all this to give our audience a real 360 degree view of the subject.?

The documentary will be produced in stand-alone two - four minute segments, which will be posted independently on The Quint. These documentaries are focused for an audience that accesses news and information mainly on the mobile phone. The Quint will also post raw interviews, key documents, maps, infographics, photo essays, detailed information about the protagonists and phenomenon and issues that are taken up in the documentaries. The Quint?s documentaries will also feature on the festival circuit.
