From the UN website:

The world is about to leave its rural past behind, and next year, for the first time, more than half the globe’s population will be living in urban areas. In Viet Nam, about one million more people live in cities every year. The growth of cities will be the single largest influence on development in the 21st century.

With ten thought-provoking films, the UN Film Festival invites you on a journey of urbanization that spans the world.
