    • Synopsis
    • Directed by Oscar-nominated Lucy Walker (The Crash Reel, Waste Land), SlumGods is a feature-length, verité musical documentary following a young hip-hop crew who’ve developed a highly elaborate and impressive mash up of Indian culture and American hip-hop. They live in one of the biggest and most notorious slums in the world – Dharavi, Mumbai – and we’re giving them the tools needed to make an autobiographical film in order to get a first hand account of how street dance offers them meaning and a chance for them to participate in the wider world.
