A fascinating and urgent documentary chronicling the decline of news reporting in India, following Shukla’s 2016 feature An Insignificant Man.
Shukla follows Indian journalist Ravish Kumar, of news network NDTV as he remains diligent in reporting factual news and balanced criticism, while networks around him fall into the realm of populism and propaganda.
While We Watched strives to get to know Ravish, portraying a man who remains earnest and professional in the face of great adversity.
