Never was a movie title more forlorn nor apt as “Tomorrow We Disappear.”
Directed by Jimmy Goldblum and Adam Weber, the film is about the puppeteers, acrobats, sword swallowers and magicians of the Kathputli colony in Delhi. They are slum-dweller-artists who have practiced their art through many generations but whose cultural and artistic traditions may vanish as a result of forced relocation.
In 2011 the government sold their land to high-rise developers who plan to build the tallest building in India on their razed property along with a luxury shopping center containing goods these people could never afford.
