Director Statement

The film 'Love' was shot on the final days of an apartment which had grown to mean a quite deal to us. I had lived there for the past 2 years. Upon moving to the capital city Dhaka to attend university, this was my first place away from home, where I had lived my whole life. We chose to direct this film as a sort of a reminder - A memoir of the wonderful souls that filled up our lives in the capital. We were fortunate in so many ways - from being able to buy our equipment for cheap, to the gorgeous characters we found ourselves surrounded by giving us time to interview them, to the all round effort encircling the place - this film took a life of its own before we knew it. Looking back, our place was place full of joy & jubilation, of laughter & mischief, of freedom, fights & rebelliousness - a place full of love.
