Slums. A filmmaker’s inspiration.

I was just thinking of the numerous slums I have witnessed, comfortably tucked in in my bed, far far far from the actual reality of what it feels like to be among the trash, the crap the poverty, the sick.

I have seen many slums in films. Slums from India, Africa, Easter Europe, Asia, America.

United Nations says, one in six of us now lives in a slum. Lives outside the formal economy.

Now, how about Iceland and its economic crisis that happened a few months back? There were no slums to come to surface in the light of all the chaos, but given our global economic crisis… we might all end up in slums one day.
