        Documentary : Water Business is Good Business Runtime: 28 mins Dierctor: Sanjay Barnela, Vasant Saberwal   Synopsis: India's water bottling industry today stands on an annual worth of about 1,800 crore rupees (1 crore = 10 million). If Lutyen's Delhi receives 400 litres per person per day, the slums of Najafgarh receive less than 30 litres per person per day.   This crisis is rooted not so much in the overall availability of water, as in the patterns of consumption and failure to regulate consumption through appropriate and equitable tariff structures. The urban mindset seeks to source water from the rural countryside, rather than focusing on its conservation.   This film travels from Delhi to Indore, Bombay to Chennai, exploring the politics and economics of urban water supplies. We come across the same solution - the construction of mega-projects to bring water from distant rivers to our various cities. Even as we source water from distant locations, with all the attendant problems of displacing rural people from their homes and livelihoods, upwardly mobile urban populations will simply ensure a continually growing need for more water. TED Talk: The ancient ingenuity of water harvesting, Anupam Mishra Runtime: 17.07 mins With wisdom and wit, Anupam Mishra talks about the amazing feats of engineering built centuries ago by the people of India's Golden Desert to harvest water. These ancient aqueducts and stepwells are still used today — and are often superior to modern water megaprojects.Read More

      STORIES I WANT TO TELL YOU IN PERSON (80 min) On the one hand, Lally Katz has been writing the funniest and most original plays in the country for the last decade – Neighbourhood Watch, for example. On the other hand, Katz, Oscar Wilde-like, has been putting her genius into her life and only her talent into her work. Now the inevitable moment has come when the two must collide. The thing is – and this is a true story – Katz was supposed to write us a play about a fortune teller. But she spent her commission (and then some) actually going to a fortune teller. In New York. More than once. This is the story of what Katz has been doing instead of writing a play. It features Katz, on her own, as herself, embroiled in a tale of art, love, money, shoes, and the apocalypse (of course). Anyone who’s met her will know that the word ‘irrepressible’ has nothing on Katz, even at her quietest. She makes chaos charming and catastrophe positively exuberant. She likes to be laughed at, and her method is to talk first and think later. Anything could happen. Seriously. ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN. It’s Lally Katz!    Read More
