Rat Race

Director: Miriam Chandy

India | 70mins | 2011 | Chicago Premiere

Synopsis: The Rat Race documents a story that unravels every night as the rest of the city sleeps. Men hired by the municipal corporation who set out with torches and sticks to bring back the bodies of 30 rats to earn a daily wage. Counted every morning by Parsi Superviser Behram Harda who likens himself to James Bond because he too has a `license to kill’ this is a film that is disturbing and yet crackles with a dark sense of humour. The Rat Race captivated an international jury in Cannes in 2010 then had 3 sold out shows in Amsterdam where it premiered at IDFA, one of the biggest documentary festivals.
