A Bit of the Earth, A Bit of the Sky

Thodi Si Zameen, Thoda Aasmaan
English (subtitled), 8 min, 2009, India

'Thodi Si Zameen, Thoda Aasmaan' is a peek into the world of street entrepreneurs, who lead their lives in the shadow of constant threat. The film takes a look at the problems faced by them in a sympathetic and quietly intimate manner. Phuphabhai is a tailor, who repairs clothes sitting under a tree, to provide a life of dignity to his family. While Mukeshbhai refurbishes sofas, struggling to keep his home (which is the road itself) fires burning. Both these individuals appear different yet share a similar tale of courage, and a persistence to survive.
