Event Type: Screening
In the last 20 years, the Delhi region has turned into one of the world's major industrial hubs. The required workforce is recruited from India's poorer regions, where survival is being made more and more difficult. This is why 4.5 million industrial workers in southern Delhi are willing to ruin their health for wages on which their families can hardly survive. People are almost powerless in this situation, but still they try to find effective ways to collectively resist.

Discussion after the film will be led by Raj Sahai, who interviewed contract workers in Manesar, about 30 km southwest of New Delhi. Sahai is a political activist, writer, and a co-founder of South Asians for Collective Action.
