Experiencing Interruptions?

Dead's Circus

In Bangladesh, Accidents are frequent phenomena now-a-days,and we fall victim of it regularly. that is why even death has become natural and meagre,in one sense a weapon of convenience.
Social values and duties have got a synonym called fairy tales.Political turmoil and bureaucracy are traumatizing public life.Our works only depict the proverb ''every man for himself"'. Society has turned into a neifelheim where gratification is dominant,ethics conceals itself in the suffocating cell of anarchic rule.
In fact in the final conversation it is quite evident that the whole story is Yellow Journalism and a creation of the reporter.

It is like a dead society where melodrama is presented by the dead's.

Director Statement

The film "Dead’s Circus” highlights the present political and psychological drawbacks aspects of Bangladesh. There are certain levels of sarcasm incorporated in this piece of work. It speaks mainly about Yellow Journalism. The social hypocrisy of people from different sectors in their day to day life is mainly projected in the film. There is a satirical element which adds a different tone as a whole. Primarily, several interviews are seen after a cycle accident took place. The people interviewed mainly tried to highlight facts which actually is beneficial for their own purpose. Some also spoke about the social problems while others tried to pull a political benefit out of it regardless of having any knowledge of the incident. A scene also speaks about the discrimination between civilians and people from governing body. The benefits shared between these two classes are unequal. Lastly, the final conversation briefs about Yellow Journalism which is a mere act of increasing media target rating point. But unfortunately a serious accident does take place after the shoot of the news. The last scene shows the death of the girl who was the center character of the film.
