3rd Navi Mumbai International Film Festival NMIFF-2016 welcomes the submission of Professional Shorts "The Urban World" from USA, Directed by Warren Bass.

"The Urban World" follows the experiences of one family living in a mixed Hindu/Muslim slum as they and over 10,000 other families are evicted from their homes on the banks of India’s Sabarmati River to make way for a massive development project. The film is both a portrait of a family at a moment of crisis, an ethnography of a culture moved from a horizontal communal society to mid-rise facilities, and a case-study that raises multiple questions regarding public policy and social justice in solving the plight of the world’s urban poor.
