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.
Only the man who sleeps and wakes as and when he wishes, is free in the truest sense of the word.
