“Extreme Nation” chronicles one of the darkest, most explicit and mysterious forms of a subculture spawned over years of metal music in the Indian subcontinent – confronting a high-power, historic & exciting ride from the past to the present – that has been hitherto little known or largely unexplored. The film is the latest endeavor of Roy Dipankar, an independent documentary filmmaker based in Chennai, India, has been working with independent music and film for 10 years and also curates film festivals and screenings around the year.

Shot over a timespan of two years and filmed across various cities, towns and beyond borders, this feature length documentary delves deep into the lives of those who are die-hard beacons and irrepressible spirits of the subculture, unfolding an awe-inspiring anthology of the emergence of metal underground in the Indian subcontinent.
The film travels vividly from Lahore in Pakistan to Nagaland in the North East of India, from Calcutta to Colombo, from Mumbai to Dhaka – capturing the origins of this movement citing social and geo-political commentary by a youth subculture, set in a fast-developing but still conservative subcontinent.
