Urbanization. Gentrification. Tenant rights are at the center of these key issues which affect all growing and dynamic cities. Leasees typically have the smallest voice as a city grows and there is money to be made from landowners and developers. A forced transient lifestyle ensues, and whole communities are formed around this necessity to "pick up" every year and find a new place to hang their hat. It's a problem seen in the U.S. and Austin, but elsewhere across the globe. Delhi, India is experiencing the same issues, and viewers can get a glimpse into these urban nomads as told through the songs and designs of a community of artists.
Come Sunday, February 16 to help support a filmmaker adding his voice to the burgeoning revolution of Indian independent cinema. Immediately following the 60-minute film there will be a live Skype Q&A session with the director and the evening will conclude with a group discussion about the role class, and other forms of discrimination, play in keeping tenant voices away from the limelight.
