English (subtitled), 28 min, 2013, India

Migrants bring their own identities to cities that are manifested and reinterpreted through food. Despite this city becoming increasingly hostile to outsiders, boundaries blur and stories meld. Old legends, a hardening Mumbai, new identities. This film explores the increasingly threatened spaces of street food in Mumbai and how it affects the livelihoods of those around it. The film traces various legends around the origins of different street foods and how it changes people’s relationships to food, identity and outsiders even today.
