Song Of Padma

The Padma is one of the mighty rivers in Bangladesh. Many poems and songs are composed on its scenic beauty. It was once famous for hilsha fish. Rajshahi, the divisional city, is established on its tumultuous bank. The silhouette of the waters reminds us of its memory through background music. The smiles, sorrows and sufferings surrounding the river are framed through the shots which will take you to its bank like a rapturous boy.

Director Statement

Shooting of Song of Padma started with the help of a camera, a director, 1 Dop & 1 assistant. It took 1 year to complete the whole shoot. At the end of the year we got 7 hours footage. Then we make a rough cut of 18 minutes. Finally we remove our all background vocal and comes with a 12 minutes experimental documentary. Its true that we dont have expensive camera or set up to shoot this documentary with 1 year but we had courage to face the reality.
