Described as India's "tinsel slum", the Kathputli artist colony in New Delhi is something of a Narnian fairytale come to life. Magicians, acrobats, mime artists, puppeteers, jugglers, folk singers, snake charmers, bear handlers and monkey trainers form a unique part of Indian history as they unite their lives, crafts and passion for art in the ghetto. As with all fairytales, though, the magic threatens to be lost. This film deals with the government's decision to issue relocation permits to the colony residents to make way for the building of private blocks. There will also be a Q&A session with directors Adam Weber and Jimmy Goldblum via Skype.
