This hour-long film is a Bollywood style documentary musical set in a school in Dharavi, Mumbai. The film follows four young people who are clever, bright, motivated and they sing!
Mixed in with observational footage are specially composed, choreographed song and dance numbers which the children (and teachers!) perform with incredible skill and charm. The film captures the unbreakable optimism and exuberance of youth. This is not a depressing examination of extreme poverty, it’s an uplifting celebration of human spirit and endeavour. Vishal Talreja, co-founder Dream a Dream, India will tell us about his work to empower young people from vulnerable backgrounds to overcome adversity and flourish in a changing world.
