This film revolves around the bioscope as a means of livelihood in Delhi and
the prevailing conditions of the community of bioscope workers. It also
tells a brief history of bioscope and that it was the first form of moving
pictures in India. The film tends to highlight the present decline of the
bioscope workers in Delhi and the role of the authorities like NDMC, police
officials and NGOs on them. Finally it also infuses array of hope for the
bioscope by giving knowledge of electronic bioscope to the audience and the
role of certain NGOs in its promotion indirectly. It also highlights the
enthusiasm of the few existing bioscope workers in the instrument who
consider it as a unique and interesting art form.

An attempt to capture the city of Delhi as it gets systematically
refashioned to become a world class space, a productive site of neo-liberal
regime. Urban scape is being reconfigured to facilitate entry and
transaction of global capital, most emphatically visible in the
proliferation of giant transnational corporations, ostentatious malls, high
rise housing and commercial centers, expensive metros and flyovers.

As the space gets takeover, it has to be thoroughly and urgently purged of
those who have toiled to built it, thereby resulting in rampant and brutal
destruction of their shelter and livelihood, this process is systematically
being planned in the larger framework provided by the neo-liberal regime,
and executed by the state-judiciary nexus. What emerges is a desirable,
commodified, privatized, cordoned city space that comes at a 'cost' and
therefore only for those who can 'afford' it.

mainstream films as well as slide shows, on a whole range of issues
