Cities of Sleep

Cities of Sleep is a feature lenght documentary directed by Shaunak Sen and produced by Films Division (India). 74 min.

From the offical website:

‘Cities of Sleep’ takes us into a heady world of insurgent sleeper’s communities as well as the infamous ‘sleep mafia’ in Delhi where just securing a safe sleeping spot often becomes a question of life and death for a large number of people.

For those in London: On 25th of May 2016, UCL Urban Laboratory organises an one-off screening of the film followed by a panel discussion with the director of the film and a group of experts on sleep, health and homelessness in Delhi.
