Watch ‘Eligible Encroachers’, a documentary that tries to speak for the tribal population of Sanjay Gandhi National Park.

A team from KC College, Mumbai, have recently made a 20 minute documentary called ‘Eligible Encroachers’, that tries to speak for the tribal population of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, a protected forest, right at the heart of Mumbai. Between urban-encroachment and the forest-department, these ‘adivasis’, which are roughly a population of 11,000 families, are today left without the most basic amenities and almost nowhere to go.
