CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: Social Studies (economic inequality, globalization), Global Issues

Students get a global perspective on the close-to-home issue of gentrification in this documentary feature, selected for the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

The Kathputli colony in New Delhi, India, might look like any other slum. But within its crumbling, hand-built infrastructure lives a half-century-old community of 2,800 artists: jugglers, acrobats, puppeteers, painters, folk singers, and magicians.

Kathputli’s residents will soon be evicted by government order, their community bulldozed to make room for the city’s first-ever luxury skyscraper. This masterful documentary follows three of Kathputli’s most talented performers as they celebrate, mourn, and wrangle with the realities of their fast disappearing way of life.

In Hindi with English subtitles
