In the early 90's I joined Chittagong Film Center along with some of my friends. We were learning in regular discussion of our seniors. Activities like film projection in the theater hall, selling tickets, sticking the posters on the city walls was really priceless. The funniest thing was working as a lightman in the theater hall. At that time, like many other people around the world - I started dreaming, yes, one day I will make a movie.
Interestingly, it was at that time that my friend Upal decided to make a documentary film on the shuttle train of Chittagong University. We were students then and nobody was from rich family, some of us was earning through private tuition, so we made a documentary film at that time by saving pocket money mostly and with the donation of some friends. So far it seems the first documentary film made in Chittagong if I am not wrong!
Then a huge break. I wrote a few poems; some books were published and photography became a passion. But the repentance of not being able to make a movie was burning me all the time. That regret was alleviated, albeit to a lesser extent, by writing about movies in newspapers and magazines, just chipping up with my dream in some way.
However, I started working on a documentary earlier this year, about a fish manger, which is currently on hold due to Covid Pandemic. And, in this lock down time it suddenly seems like time needs to be held. I discussed with my team; I must thank them for making my dream true with their huge support. Thus, the documentary film ‘LIMIT’ is created.
Yes all that sounds pretty crap to me, looks like I have been missing to catch the train for long time. This year the age has increased by one more year than last year. But, still wanting to make a movie, this desire is getting stronger and stronger. I believe films spread is limitless, its potential still fascinates me today. I watch a lot of movies, movies make me think a lot, I am amazed by its infinite application technique.
