About Tomorrow We Disappear film:
At first glance, the Kathputli colony looks like any other Indian slum. But Kathputli is a place of fading traditions. For half a century 2,800 artist families have called its narrow alleyways home; there are jugglers and acrobats, puppeteers and painters, folk singers and magicians, many of whom are well-respected artists in India and abroad.
In 2009 the New Delhi government sold Kathputli to developers for a fraction of its worth. The land is to be bulldozed to make room for the city’s first-ever skyscraper, The Raheja Phoenix.
Tomorrow We Disappear documents the last days of Kathputli; spanning three years, the film follows Puran the Puppeteer, Rahman the Magician, and Maya the Acrobat as they approach their looming eviction.
Doors open at 7 and movie will start at 7:30pm.
Refreshments (baked goods, coffee, tea, etc.) will be available for purchase at Trinosophes.
