*The Regent Street Cinema*

309 Regent Street, London W1B 2UW





In this stunning documentary, *Cities of Sleep, *first-time filmmaker
Shaunak Sen takes us into a world of insurgent sleeper communities and the
infamous ‘sleep mafia’ in Delhi, where securing a safe sleeping spot often
becomes a question of life and death: “the difference between public and
private property is sleep”. It trails the lives of two men, Shakeel, a
renegade homeless sleeper, and Ranjeet, a sleep entrepreneur who runs a
‘sleep-cinema’ community under Loha bridge. Both observational documentary
and a philosophical exploration of sleep inspired by the ideas of Jacques
Ranciere, this multi-award-winning film draws on three years of research in
streets and night shelters. The film has been enthusiastically reviewed and
the filmmaker will be present by Skype for a Q&A discussion after the
screening, moderated by *Prof. Rosie Thomas* (Director, Centre for Research
and Education in Arts and Media, University of Westminster).
