Sambhavna is a 20-minute self-shot documentary made by two medical students who visited the site of the on-going Bhopal chemical disaster in central India. The film focuses around the work of the Sambhavna Clinic, a primary healthcare centre providing free medical care to victims.

Looking at the past, present and future of life in Bhopal, this film is designed to engage the public, the majority of whom are not aware this is a continuing problem today. Whilst the initial gas leak occurred in 1984, ground water contamination continues in the densely populated slum colonies around the site.
