Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Tareque Masud and cinematographer Mishuk Munier were remembered through lighting candles by film and cultural personalities on Tuesday.
Moviana Film Society arranged the programme in the evening in front of the Bangladesh National Museum.
Two other commemorative programmes were also held outside the capital in Faridpur and Manikganj.
Hundreds of people of Nurpur village of the Bhanga upazilla of Faridpur district attended the commemorative programme held in Tareque’s paternal house. Presided by Tareque’s wife Catherine Masud, Tareque’s friends and colleagues spoke on the occasion. Tareque’s grave was covered with a white sheet and garlands of flowers were bestowed by individuals and on behalf of organisations.
‘Tareque was a stalwart of the country’s filmdom. He had many dreams and visions. It is now our responsibility to give his dreams shape in reality’, said Catherine Masud. The attendees at the commemorative programme demanded a road of the area to be named after the deceased film-maker.
Another commemorative programme was held at Joka on the Dhaka-Aricha highway near Gheor upazilla in Manikganj, the place where Tareque Masud, Mishuk Munier and three others had died in an accident on August 13 in 2011 while driving back to Dhaka.
