Vertical City.

Este documental muestra las lamentables condiciones en que se encuentran los habitantes de los "slums" en los suburbios de Mumbai. Muchos residentes fueron trasladados a unas enormes edificaciones de gran altura, con la promesa de una vida mejor. Sin embargo la rápida degradación de esta ‘ciudad vertical’ y las infrahumanas condiciones de salubridad que presentan, son un reflejo de la grave emergencia social a la que la ciudad debe hacer frente. 

"Slums have constituted an integral part of Mumbai's cityscape for several decades. With its potential to provide employment to a vast multitude, the city attracts a large number of people. Many of them stay in slum colonies for the lack of a better alternative. 
Slum-dwellers stay in shanty structures in unhygienic environment, not by choice but by compelling circumstances as they were thrown out of the formal housing sector, the latter being expensive and much beyond their income levels. It is imperative to enhance their standard of living and for which an authorized dwelling unit is a first step in the right direction. This, in turn, will bring about a marked improvement in their hygiene and health as well as raise the level of public hygiene which has fallen to very low ebb."
