The Tent Village is a collaborative work between Nilima Abrams and four teenagers she worked with in India. After learning basic filmmaking, the students decided to film at roadside hovels where garbage workers and hair collectors live. The filmmakers' unique perspectives guide the viewer through life in the "tent village", bringing a compassionate yet unsentimental peek into the lives of people who are often barely seen as people at all.

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
