Are We So Differentâ€¦ Amar Ki Etoi Bhinno | 36mins
Director: Mr Lok Prakash | Producer: TEG Mediatech Pvt. Ltd.
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Bangladesh
This film talks about a range of masculinities.
Different people have unique experiences of coping and surviving in Bangladesh, a country often ruled by strict masculine and patriarchal ideals. This film shows the stories of those who challenge these strictures and notions, as told in their own words. This is arguably the first documentary film set in Bangladesh where interviewees spoke openly about themselves and their relationships, bringing up issues of sexuality and masculinityâ€”the love for it or lack of it!
Shot extensively in cities, small towns, and villages of Bangladesh with Bangladeshi as well as Indian professionals with post-production done in New Delhi. The music is mostly influenced and sung by Baul artists and a street-smart kid named Robin!
