Special Mention in the competition for Green Warsaw Award
Acclaimed filmmaker Rahul Jain (“Machines”) shows a world on the brink – through striking images and eye-opening accounts from everyday citizens of his native New Delhi

In a sprawling mega city where the dangers of climate change are present not future, acclaimed filmmaker Rahul Jain (“Machines”) shows a world on the brink. Told through striking images and eye-opening accounts from everyday citizens, “Invisible Demons” delivers a visceral and immersive journey through the stories of just a few of Delhi’s 30 million inhabitants fighting to survive. “Invisible Demons” offers a deeply experiential and new perspective on its subject: the clear and present climate reality. Jain engages the senses by directly stimulating our desire to live in a world with equitable access to clean air and water. Is it possible to imagine this future in Delhi, in India, or anywhere in the modern world?
