Indus Films is a BAFTA award-winning documentary production company, best known for its high-end, intelligent documentary film-making for the BBC and Channel 4. From London's food markets to the tribes of the Amazon Basin they produce powerful yet sensitive observational documentary films about the contemporary world. Recent productions include The Mekong River with Sue Perkins (BBC2, 2.6m viewers); World's Greatest Food Markets (BBC2, 1.6million viewers); Wild Shepherdess with Kate Humble (BBC2, 2million viewers). They purposefully make a small number of high-quality projects each year, stories we care about and feel it's important to tell.
Their latest series for Channel 4, The World’s Most Expensive Food, is about luxury food & drink, high-end dining and the clients who are buying and eating the produce. They are currently making the second series, which is an aspirational series that follows a broad range of the food and drink suppliers, chefs and artisan producers who cater for the absolute high end market. In doing so the documentaries will celebrate and tell the story behind the world’s finest food, drink and the individuals who are dining on delicacies. This series follows on from one they made recently along similar lines which was a great success and was enjoyed thoroughly by all those involved.
They are interested in following a group of clients on a shooting trip, speaking with Estate Owners in this market and they are also looking into speaking with Chefs working for shooting parties on private Estates.
