About The Event

Arthshila Ahmedabad’s Film Showcase this week features Not Just Roads.  An ethnographic documentary film that narrates the story of a massive urban transformation underway in India. Highways are being constructed at an unprecedented rate of 23 kilometres per day under the Indian government’s Bharatmala (‘Garland of Limitless Roads’) program. The program aims to open new territories for the emerging Indian middle class. Currently, the territory is inhabited by villages, working-class neighbourhoods, and nomadic herders. It is crisscrossed by native trails and vital ecological commons. This film captures the story of one such highway outside Delhi, from the perspective of human and non-human actors.

Join us for the screening at 5.00 pm on 19 May 2023 (Friday) and at 11.30 am on 20 – 21 May 2023 (Saturday – Sunday).
