The Tent Village


This screening will be followed by a Q& A with the filmmakers as well as a reception.
The Tent Village is a story about the lives of road-side dwellers in S. India, filmed by their teenaged children and friends. The film is not, however just another movie about poverty in India, pointing fingers, or patronizing. The young filmmakers provide rare, nuanced, and gentle yet honest perspectives on child marriage, alcoholism and caste stigma, exploring the inter-play between external oppression, internalized self-defeat, and hope. Though set in India, the story’s themes relate to issues faced everywhere, such as stereotypes, gender relations and social mobility. (Dir. by Nilima Abrams, 2016, India, 27 mins., Not Rated)
