Horn Please

Horn Please is a documentary by Shantanu Suman that documents the colorful art adorning many trucks in India. The title derives from a message seen behind each and every truck in India. It is a signal for the vehicles behind the trucks to blow the horn before overtaking. The sheer exposure of the signage has led it to become a popular phrase among Indians.
