CITIES ON SPEED - MUMBAI DISCONNECTED

Denmark, 2009 (MIFF 2010, Our Space)

Director: Camilla Nielsson, Frederik Jacobi

Mumbai Disconnected

With a population set to grow from 18 million to 28.5 million in the next 10 years - 80% of whom currently catch the train to and from work each day - Mumbai is a city warping under the weight of its own infrastructure. Two citizens and a politician push their own agendas in a city on the verge of logistical catastrophe.
