NOT JUST ROADS

Documentary 1h 7m 2020

A massive urban transformation is underway in India. As part of the government’s Bharatmala (‘Garland of Limitless Roads’) programme, highways are being constructed at an unprecedented rate—with the aim of opening up new territories to the emerging Indian middle classes. Currently, these lands are populated with villages, working-class neighbourhoods and nomadic herders—and criss-crossed by native trails and ecologically vital common land. Not Just Roads focuses on the building of the Dwarka Expressway outside Delhi, from the perspectives of both its human and non-human actors. We witness working-class neighbourhoods being demolished, protests staged against new developments, and real estate salesmen desperately pitching dream homes in gated communites—homes that will never be inhabited by the workers who construct them.
