Bangladeshi documentary film 'Qasida of Dhaka' received the award for the best documentary in Delhi's Indus Valley International Film Festival-2020.
Directed by Anarya Murshid, the film grabbed the award and applause for its portrayal of Dhaka's Qasida, a unique but almost extinct musical heritage from the Mughal emperor in Dhaka.
Bangladesh's distributor for the festival Manjurul Islam Megh was informed via email that the film received the award.
Talking about his documentary film 'Qasida of Dhaka', Anarya Murshid said, "There are many folk traditions in our country like Qasida, which we may not be able to see sustaining for long. Through films like this, we can preserve the heritage in celluloid and let the world know about our tradition and culture. Generations ahead of us should work on this type of projects to explore and glorify our heritage that we should always be proud of."
"I thank my team behind the film, the producer company and all the associates. This achievement was made possible because of their hardship and dedicated enthusiasm with determination", Murshid said.
The film is narrated by actor Jayanto Chattopadhyay while the sound and music was done by Prince Shuvo. The film is produced by Bangladhol Limited.
Celebrated Indian filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj was awarded the best director for India's national award-winning film 'Pataakha' in the festival, while the award for best biopic went to Nandita Das directed film 'Manto', starring by Nawazuddin Siddiqui who also received the award for the best actor.
The international festival took place online from August 1 to 9. Aside from Qasida of Dhaka, three other Bangladeshi films (two full-length feature films and a short film) were also projected in the festival.
Masud Pathik directorial government granted film 'Maya the Lost Mother' was nominated in the feature film category, while 'Nolok' directed by Sakib Sonet was nominated in the popular category as a commercial film. Mejanur Rahman Labu directorial 'Mala Bhabi' was the other participation from Bangladesh in the short film category.
Angelina Jolie asked Monday that the private judge overseeing her divorce from Brad Pitt be disqualified from the case, reports AP.
She has sought for the removal because of insufficient disclosures of his business relationships with one of Pitt's attorneys.
Jolie, 43, and Pitt, 55, were a couple for 12 years. They were married in 2014, and Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
They have six children.
In a filing in Los Angeles Superior Court, Jolie argues that Judge John W Ouderkirk should be taken off the divorce case that she filed in 2016 because he was too late and not forthcoming enough about other cases he was hired for involving Pitt attorney Anne C Kiley.
It says that during the Jolie-Pitt proceedings Ouderkirk has “failed to disclose the cases that demonstrated the current, ongoing, repeat-customer relationship between the judge and Respondent’s counsel.”
It goes on to say that Pitt's attorney “actively advocated for Judge Ouderkirk’s financial interests in moving — over the opposing party’s opposition — to have his appointment (and his ability to continue to receive fees) extended in a high profile case.”

An email to Kiley and Pitt's lead attorney Lance Spiegel seeking comment was not returned, nor was an email seeking comment from Ouderkirk.
Pitt and Jolie, like other high-profile couples, are paying for a private judge in their divorce case to keep many of its filings and the personal and financial details within them sealed, though some legal moves must be made within standard court procedure.
Jolie's filing emphasises that a private judge must follow the same rules of disclosure and conflict of interest that other judges must.
The filing says “it doesn’t matter if Judge Ouderkirk is actually biased. Under California law disqualification is required so long as a person aware of the facts ‘might reasonably entertain a doubt’ about Judge Ouderkirk’s ability to remain impartial.”
Jolie's attorneys have sought in private proceedings to have Ouderkirk disqualify himself, but the filing says Pitt's side has insisted on keeping him.
“As is set forth in the filing, all my client is asking for is a fair trial based on facts, with no special favors extended to either side," Jolie's attorney Samantha Bley DeJean said in an email to The Associated Press. “The only way litigants can trust the process is for everyone involved to ensure that there is transparency and impartiality.”
Pitt and Jolie were declared divorced, and the Pitt was dropped from her name, in April of 2019, after their lawyers asked for a bifurcated judgment, meaning that two married people can be declared single while other issues, including finances and child custody, remain.
Because most of the documents have been sealed, it is not clear what issues remain unresolved, but Jolie filed papers in 2018 saying Pitt wasn’t paying sufficient child support, which his attorneys disputed, calling the filing an effort to manipulate media coverage of the split.
