Bangladeshi war films to be screened in TripuraCulture Desk
Eleven Bangladeshi films highlighting the War of Independence of the country will be screened in a film festival in the Indian state Tripura.
‘These films which recreate the valiant deeds of the freedom fighters in the 1971 liberation war, would be screened in four places in Tripura, including the capital,” Tripura information and cultural affairs minister Bhanulal Saha said on Friday, reports Tripura News.
The festival has been organised in association with Bangladesh and Tripura’s cultural organisations, Bangladesh diplomatic mission in Agartala and the Tripura government.
Both documentary and feature films including Palashi to Dhanmandi, Karigar, Joyjatra, Pramanya Chitra-1971, Amar Bandhu Rashed and Guerrilla are scheduled to be screened at the festival.
‘The proposed films to be screened in the film festivals have won various international awards,’ the minister said adding that during the festival, directors would be present to explain their movies and the heroic stories of the liberation war.
‘Over 1,600,000 Bangladeshis (more than the state’s then total population of 1,500,000) had taken shelter in Tripura alone fleeing the barbaric attacks of the Pakistani forces,’ Saha said.
‘The new generation in India and other countries knows very little about Bangladesh’s liberation war and the supreme sacrifice of lakhs of people and India’s role in the battle,’ he added. Tripura shares an 856-km border with Bangladesh.
