“Tomorrow We Disappear” is Indiewire’s pick for one of top documentaries of 2014 and premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. A poor artist/magician community in India’s city of New Delhi is forcibly displaced by redevelopment.
Since the 1970s, India’s city of New Delhi’s magicians, puppeteers, and circus performers have called the tinsel slum, the Kathputli Colony, their home. In 2013, the government issued relocation permits to the colony residents; the slum is to be bulldozed and cleared for development. The film explores the last remnants of a culture born out of folk art and molded by poverty.
