TOMORROW WE DISAPPEAR
Documentary, Relationships, NY Director(s), First Time Filmmaker
“We are the flying birds…here today and gone tomorrow.” The puppeteers, performers, and magicians of the Kathputli colony in Delhi are the last of their kind. When their land is sold to developers to be bulldozed and transformed into luxury high-rises, these once-itinerant artists are forced to fight for the only home they know. Fending off relocation, they keep alive the mystical Indian folkarts, one day at a time. In this stunning feature debut, Jim Goldblum and Adam Weber capture the fleeting joys of a way of life that is quickly becoming lost. What beauty is destroyed as we are forced into someone else’s vision of the future? Tomorrow We Disappear is not simply an act of documentation, but ultimately an extraordinary act of preservation.
