Description

Bombay, Mexico City, Moscow, New York: seductive yet repellent monsters. The contradiction insinuates itself into the daily lives of those who populate these mega cities.

The film's twelve chapters tell the tales of:

  • Shankar, the Bioscope Man
  • Modesto, the chicken feet vendor
  • Baba Khan, the paint recycler
  • Nestor, the trash scavenger
  • Oleg, Borya, Kolya and Misha, the street kids
  • Cassandra, the performer
  • Larissa, the crane driver
  • Toni, the hustler.

Day in, day out they all set about their struggle for survival with ingenuity, intelligence and dignity. And they all share a single fantasy: the dream of a better life. MEGACITIES is a film about work, poverty, violence, love and sex. A film about the beauty of people.

“Many of the film's remarkable and gritty images will undoubtedly lead viewers to evaluate the relative success or failure their own lives, or cause them to feel thankful for what they have. "Megacities” is sure to leave you with the idea that many people live lives that we cannot possibly imagine, and may indeed ourselves be unable to endure." FILM THREAT

“Its amazing that people will still find joy and celebration and meaning in a world that can at times be dark and desperate and hopeless.” EFILMCRITIC.COM
