3rd Navi Mumbai International Film Festival NMIFF-2016 welcomes the submission of a Professional Shorts "Kaala Heera" from India, Directed by Priyarth Mukherjee.
"Kaala Heera" (Black Diamond) is a term we use for coal. This description is apt as coal, even though considered cheap, is one of the most expensive source of fuel in the world.The real cost of coal is not the amount of money we spend on it's purchase.Effects of coal and mining stays with us for decades. Slashed down forests, barren lands, polluted atmosphere, loss of habitat, health disorders are only few of many direct impacts of coal."Kaala Heera" does not question the importance of coal, but urges everyone to use this precious gift of nature wisely. We unknowingly use coal in our daily lives, in form of electricity and day today goods (which are manufactured using power from this very black diamond).We somewhere are ignorant of the fact that for our luxurious lifestyles, we are pushing our future generation to a point where they will be struggling for the basic amenities to survive.
