Bombay: Our City
1985, Color, 75 mins
BOMBAY: OUR CITY tells the story of the daily battle for
survival of the 4 million slum dwellers of Bombay who make
up half the city’s population. Although they are Bombay’s workforce – industrial laborers, construction workers, domestic servants – they are denied city utilities like electricity, sanitation, and water. Many slumdwellers must also face the constant threat of eviction as city
authorities carry out campaigns to “beautify” Bombay.
BOMBAY: OUR CITY is an indictment of injustice and misery, and a call to action on the side of the slumdwellers.
