Dhaka on film - Runway

Runway - A Film by Tareque & Cathrine Masud
One World Centre's insight:

A dramatic Bangla film about a young man, Ruhul, who lives with his family in a small dwelling in the shadows of the international airport. While his mother tries to support the family selling milk from a cow purchased with a micro credit loan and his sister works long hours in a garment factory, Ruhul struggles to find work. His father has not been heard from since leaving for a job in the Middle East and Ruhul is increasingly frustrated till he meets a new friend, introducing him to new but dangerous possibilities.

 

The film won the Peril Prothom Alo Award in 2010, the Bangladeshi equivalent to the 'Oscar'.
