Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, in cooperation with the International Film Initiative of Bangladesh (IFIB), organized the screening of the Shahneoyaj Cacoly-directed film “Nodijon” (The River of Colours) on Sunday, December 15 at Goethe-Institut Bangladesh auditorium.
The event was joined by President of the International Film Initiative of Bangladesh (IFIB) Samia Zaman, Dhaka University’s Associate Professor of the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies and actor Wahida Mollick, the film’s actor Pran Roy and director Shahneoyaj Cacoly.
Samia Zaman, in her welcoming speech, said “Almost a year has passed since we started ‘Through Her Eyes’ Film Screening series, which has given us the opportunity to come together regularly to watch and discuss films made by women. A bold film about social injustice against women, ‘Nodijon’ again reminded me about why we thought it was important to have this space.”
The film “Nodijan”, deals with the social and marital consequences of a man divorcing his wife by using the oral 'talaq'; first suspecting her of adultery and then realising his mistake and wanting her back.
Followed by the screening, filmmaker Shahneoyaj Cacoly and actor Pran Roy spoke during a lively Q&A discussion session, moderated by Wahida Mollick.
