‘Lovely Villa’ is the name of the apartment building in which the filmmaker grew up as he studied to become an architect. This housing project represents an imagination of the ideal community for a modern India. The film explores the architecture of the colony through a personal narrative. ‘Vertical City’ lets the viewer experience the living conditions of places hidden away in a 21st century metropolis. In a far suburb of Bombay, residents from slums are moved into high-rise apartment complexes with the promise of a better life. While these complexes are built to house the poor, they have also been seen as moves to free slum land in prime city areas for commercial development. Post film discussion with the filmmaker, Avijit Mukul, a Mumbai-based documentary filmmaker to follow. 32m & 34m
