Film Screening and Discussion
Q+A with Rahul Roy, Director
Sunder Nagri (Beautiful City) is a small working class colony on the margins of India’s capital city, Delhi. Most families residing here come from a community of weavers. The last ten years have seen a gradual disintegration of the handloom tradition of this community under the globalisation regime. Families have to cope with change as well as reinvent themselves to eke out a living. The City Beautiful (78 min, 2003) is the story of two families struggling to make sense of a world, which keeps pushing them to the margins.
