the asian pitch  >>> supermen of malegaon                                      <<<back

The documentary is about the making of the movie "Malegaon ka Superman". It's a fascinating story of a motley crew of Malegaons for whom their filmmaking is a labor of love and not an enterprise in commercial interests.

Juxtaposing the frenzied production activities against a stark socio--economic backdrop of Malegaon, the documentary reveals the cathartic and spellbinding importance of the "magic of the movies" on the people.
Ironically, all this is not a sustained effort to rise above their exploitative milieu but merely a temporary escape into the fantastical world of films.
