The Women of Kunda Basti

Set during the blistering heat of summer in Jaipur, Rajasthan, The Women of Kunda Basti follows the lives of three women in an urban slum, where the burden of collecting and often fighting for water is carried by the community’s mothers and daughters. As the film follows the women through a single day in the Kunda Basti slum, it highlights the ways in which each takes action to better her community.
