Bangladeshi Film at Cannes Film Festival

We all love to watch movies, and many films are remarkable. However, the creativity shown by the filmmaker to show the writings in visuals to an audience is outstanding. And here’s one more exceptional filmmaker from Bangladesh, Abdullah Mohammad Saad, whose film Rehana Maryam Noor Un Certain Regard section honors films that tell non-traditional stories at Cannes Film Festival. And this is the only Bangladeshi Film at Cannes Film Festival. 

Rehana Maryam Noor is adapted from an assistant professor at a medical college named Rehana. However, she was a professor and a mother; among the others, suddenly, her life witnessed an unexpected incident involving a female student. That incident impels her into protests and a fight against the system on behalf of the student and her daughter.

After the 2016 film Live from Dhaka,  this film is Saad’s second directorial attempt. Exceptional directors with an outstanding cast, including Azmeri Haque Badhon, Afia Zahin, Kazi Sami Hasan, and Tuhin Tajima.

Azmeri Haque Badhon, who played the role of Rehana, was almost cried when Saad called her to share the news over the phone.

And this is not the success of one film; this is the victory for the whole of Bangladesh. 

Azmeri claims that playing the role of Rehana with perfection was only possible because of the efforts of Sada. 

Azmeri was a struggling actor for a long time. And this helped Sada to see the complexities of character in Azmeri. Azmeri auditioned for this role in 2018. For few months, she was kept under the director’s observation to identify her for this role. Subsequently, she also had to rehearse for nine months. 

Nominating in one of the most extensive worldwide film festivals is not a cakewalk. And this so huge for the people and the cinema of Bangladesh.
