This is the first trailer for the documentary film project, "Ascending India." The first phase of our project was to capture Sujay at the Red River Gorge in Kentucky, and interview him about his quest to bring greater awareness and development of rock climbing, back to his home country of India. I then traveled to India to document Sujay's work in developing the country's first government-sanctioned sport climbing area. Follow us on Vimeo, connect with us on facebook or elsewhere, to stay posted on some upcoming information, shooting dates, and fundraisers. Thanks for watching.
