About the project

The City We Built is a feature-length documentary film about environmental issues in urban spaces.




The City we all see today is the City we have built over a period of time, and the environmental challenges we face today in these cities - the air water and soil pollution, the landfills, the loss of a number of species - they are the issues which have proliferated over a period of time.


What first started as just research to feed my curiosity, built up over time into a nationwide movement that I realized I simply needed to document.

This film will explore the source of the problem, how it escalated over time, its magnitude, and what the future will look like if the change is not embraced now. It will feature interviews with top experts and politicians throwing light on this complex dilemma.

Did you know? A busy road in Delhi can now be equated to Hitler's gas chambers. 


Global warming sounds big and alarming when we look at it from a national or world-wide perspective - but when we go to its grass-root level and see how it impacts individuals; when we see their conviction and plight to keep going on for a larger cause - that's when it really hits home.


"The City We Built explores the human side of environmental degradation."


Why


There are a number of reasons why I set out on this journey:


Following the global warming talk, in June 2018, authorities responsible for the redevelopment projects in South Delhi planned on cutting down 16500 trees! In a city that is already trying hard to breathe, this would basically pull the plug. This incident raised lots of questions, and I was curious to know more. The more I searched the more I found out. I witnessed a series of protests for the trees. I watched this news eventually make it to the news channels. This is when I knew I wanted to go all in with my research!





The data I collected from the research, interviews, and discussions made the picture clear - that this issue is not limited to just chopping trees. It is a tremendous loss of ecology & biodiversity which is so terrifying!


The chain reaction of this is bad air, polluted water, landfills which is affecting the health and living standards and this environmental toxicity is literally killing thousands of people. I’m concerned about how brutalized we have become towards the environment while living in the urban chaos. I also feel that there are no prescribed remedies; we each need to arrive at our own insights. This film will reflect and intensify existing environmental discourse.

It’s time to challenge and question some of the norms and the way things are done.






This film will make a lot of noise and create a long-lasting impact. The message we're trying to send through our film can only make a difference in the true sense if the community comes together to make a change. For this to happen, we need the support of not just our friends and family, but of all the people who believe in the urgent need to create change.

Why crowdfunding?

When we started the film, we thought we would be able to accomplish this by the funds collected from our own pockets. But gradually, as the film started to take shape we realized that to make it in the best way, we would need more funds.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 1500000 in Equipment Hire

Rs. 1200000 in Crew Hire

Rs. 600000 in Travel, boarding and lodging


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

We believe every film has its own destiny and ours is no different. Our project has its own share of risks too.

The biggest challenge associated with the project is the scale of its execution. It demands proper planning, coordination and timed interaction with institutions, individuals, experts. But we have done extensive research over the last eight months and have found reliable on-ground partners to help us achieve our goal of documenting the life lessons and passing them on.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

We have been working on this project tirelessly for over eight months now, without taking any money for our sweat and blood. All we need now is funding so we can complete this revolutionary project.
