Qila Aparajit (The Fort Undefeated)

Some children live in a night shelter close to Jama Masjid. Living with them in their world and experiencing their life situations closely is the path that the film moves on. Also, an exploration of the Red Fort and its history adds to this journey by making us think about the children’s connection with this monument. By offering us a way of looking at the children’s lives and their relationship to a historical monument, the film ends up raising some questions for us to think about.
