NMIFF welcomes the entry of a short documentary film “Shanty Town” from India, DIRECTED By - Devvrat Mishra.

"Shanty Town is a documentary film that gives an insight into life in a slum in India. With a large population inhabiting slums, it is necessary to know how people live, what challenges people face while living in a slum. A slum has always been termed as a place with less than bare necessities and a place unfit for living. Unhygienic surroundings, bad terrain and a lot more things makes it a place people won't even wish to visit, but then some of them are forced to live there, spend their entire life in a place like that. Shanty Town gives us a thorough visit from the point of view of a man who has been living in a civilized world with all the day to day necessities. When such a man
visits a slum and interacts with the residents, and tries to understand the life in a slum, he rather than feeling sorry about the state of the place, the people are living in, feels inspired and motivated acknowledging the attitude and hard work these people possess, that they have been facing all
these difficulties and they are still willing to. The people residing in a slum have accepted their life."
