Director Statement

No time in history has the psychology of young men been this important. From the rise of extremism amongst upper-middle class Muslims to the incel movement in the West, the frustration of young men within the context of an increasingly capitalistic and patriarchal society has led to some of the most violent acts in the world's history. In Bangladesh, this reminder came through the Holey Artisan attack, which left the country shaken and shocked, unable to comprehend how students from well educated backgrounds could be manipulated to such an extent as to carry out such heinous acts. This is what "Face to Face" wishes to explore: That this is not as black and white as terrorism has always been portrayed to be and how one young man, with an environment as similar to as any other, can be brainwashed into following the path of an unjust God. This understanding remains crucial, that, at their hearts, how these young men have been brainwashed, and that, at the end of the day, if we take the time to listen to them, redemption is not merely possible, it is likely. We just need someone to show us the way. That is what Mukhomukhi does. It shows us the way, the path in the middle, in an era where everyone is expected to take a side.
