Faecal Attraction is the latest film from CSE which is about the absurd relationship between rich people's shit and poor people's water.
Most rivers in India have turned into sewage canals. The stretches passing through cities are the worst off. What the urban middle class is most bothered about is the lost beauty of these rivers. So urban authorities evict poor people living in 'illegal' shanties by the rivers or they build expensive sewage treatment plants to clean the rivers. But nothing works. This comes at a cost. Poor people get very little water, mostly unsafe, and pay more for it in the bargain. They do not get sanitation cover and pay a heavy price in terms of health.
