A break in Mumbai


In the middle of Dharavi, the largest slum area in Asia located in the heart of Mumbai, houses are stacked between the two major railways in India. In this desolate urbanization, the newspaper The Guardian wanted to portray in a short documentary the life of Vikram, a 15 year-old student full of talent that founds in the hip-hop a form to capture their dreams. With the excuse of going out of home to buy some milk, the young Vikram leaves the family everyday to dance with other dancers from The SlumGods of Mumbai hiding from her parents. An overcoming story that shows that talent doesn’t know about age or places.
