Not Just Roads

A massive urban transformation is underway in India. Highways are being constructed at an unprecedented rate of 23 kilometres per day under the Indian government's Bharatmala (‘Garland of Limitless Roads’) program. It aims to open new territories for the emerging Indian middle class. Currently, the territory is inhabited by villages, working-class communities, and nomadic herders. It is crisscrossed by native trails and vital ecological commons. This film captures the story of one such highway outside Delhi, from the perspective of human and non-human actors.
