IAmA documentary filmmaker who spent 2 years undercover as a student in India's toughest med school. All I had was a handheld camcorder. My film PLACEBO is now on Netflix globally. AMA!
Hi reddit, Abhay Kumar here.
Short bio: With an acceptance rate of less than 0.1%, the AIIMS in New Delhi is one of the toughest med schools in the world to get into. The filmmaker went undercover on campus after his brother, an AIIMS student, was injured in a freak accident. Armed with just a camcorder, he spent 2 years on campus infiltrating the college's complex mindscape. Placebo is the hybrid documentary born out of this journey. It is streaming globally on Netflix now.
Five years after shooting, the film is now available for the first time to the public globally on Netflix, and is coming soon on other digital platforms.
