1982 42’ b&w English d/s/c Uma Segal pc FTII

The only film, made while still a student, by the promising cinematographer and director Uma Segal, who died in 1991. The film deals with slum demolition in Bombay, a major political issue in the early 80s (and also the subject of Patwardhan’s Hamara Shaher, 1985). It intercuts interviews with various concerned individuals, and ends with documentary shots of an actual demolition.
