LIVING ON THE EDGE – DEGLAMOURIZING BOLLYWOOD (51 min)

Living On the EdgeThis documentary is startling revelation about the abysmal working conditions in Bollywood which is now laying claim to be global giant and churning out thousands of hours of content. The technicians and workers are deprived of social security and long punishing working hours take their toll on their health. The basic and fundamental safety measures are absent leading to accidents with unfailing regularity. Basic facilities such as clean toilets and hygienically prepared food are not accessible. In nutshell human rights are violated on sets and locations with impunity.

Language: Hindi (English subtitles)

Grill (20 min)

GrillA broken window grill allows a homeless man to accidentally gain access to the house of a girl who works night shifts. His nights in the home are more comfortable than the harsh nights spent on the road. His growing love for the house makes him take many risks.

Chippa (1 hr)

ChippaOn the eve of his tenth birthday, when Chippa receives a letter for his long-absent father, he decides to leave his pavement abode to find out more.
