Tomorrow We Disappear


Jim Goldblum, Adam Weber und Josh Cogan aus New York haben versucht, über die Crowdfunding-Plattform Kickstarter 40.000 Dollar für ihr Dokumentarfilmprojekt “Tomorrow We Disappear” über indische Fahrensleute in einem Slum in Delhi zusammenzubekommen. Am 13. November 2011 wurde die Projektfinanzierung mit 61.931 Dollar von 540 Unterstützern erfolgreich abgeschlossen; dazu gab es noch 3.877 Facebok-Likes.

Zu dem Projekt schreiben die drei: For hundreds of years roaming artists traveled the Indian countryside, creating the stories, the mythological backbone that would unite a country. Before radio, film, and television, these artists helped form what we now call the Web of India. In the 1950s the artists ended their itinerant routes and moved into vacant land beside a jungle in West Delhi. They called their new home the Kathputli Colony. The colony is now a tinsel slum, providing home to some of the world’s greatest street magicians, acrobats, and puppeteers. But last year the government sold the Kathputli land to real estate developers; the slum is to be bulldozed and cleared for development. Our film, “Tomorrow We Disappear,” will take you into the world of the Kathputli Colony, to experience the last remnants of its unique culture before it’s too late.
