"Entertaining mix of pathos and sword swallowing." - Variety
As school budgets shrink, art and music programs are usually the first to be cut. This alarming trend is occuring all over the world, even in the small Indian slum where 2,500 puppeteers, magicians, and acrobats call home. For over 40 years The Kathputli colony has produced India's greatest artists, but in 2012 the Indian government repossessed the Kathputli land to give way to a new set of skyscrapers. Tomorrow We Disappear provides a stunningly shot case study for this alarming trend of development over community, and is highly recommended for colleges and university courses in Art History, Developmental Economics,' Globalization, Development-induced Displacement, Human Rights, Puppetry, and Urban Sociology.
