This Day Is to Be Special: the Role of Exaggerated Contrast in an Indian Wedding
This movie documents an explorative look at how audial and visual cues are purposefully exaggerated in Indian culture as a means of separating the sacred from the profane. It is known that one of the key elements of sacredness is its separation from the profane (Belk, Wallendorf, & Sherry 1989). This research shows how aspects of a typical North Indian wedding ceremony and the events surrounding the wedding are used as a means of contrast. Audial and visual cues are knowingly and often excessively exaggerated from everyday Indian life as a means of ensuring separation from the profane.
