Premiere: Deshantori (The Migrant)

Drishtipat are screening the London Premiere of Deshantori (The Migrant) by Sujan Mahmud and Mridul Chowdhury at Oxford House on the 3rd of February 2007. The premiere will be followed by a Q&A with a panel (chaired by Drishtipat founder Asif Saleh) including the filmmaker Mridul Chowdhury, Piya Muqit and Misbah.

More details on the film and venue here.

Deshantori is a docudrama following the journey of 26 Bangladeshis who tried to migrate to Spain through the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea in 2005 and were in the end forced to resort to cannibalism to stay alive. Deshantori explores the deep frustrations of today’s young generation of Bangladesh, 30 years after independence, whilst also at the same time their incorrigible national pride and optimism.

Mridul Chowdhury explained his reasons for filming this subject matter:

It is a theme that brings out the irony of the situation, that a few decades ago the young generation of Bangladesh were making sacrifices to create a nation while now, they are making sacrifices to leave it. After fighting and giving blood to have our own place on the world map, our own passport, we are now using that little green book to get out of the country through any means possible.

    Go watch ‘Deshantori.’ Its a timely and well-crafted film. The journey of the desperate migrants embodies the struggles of an entire population. Kudos to the filmmakers for their important work.

    Look up this great write-up on Deshantori: http://www.drishtipat.org/blog/2007/02/04/deshantori-see-it/
    Scene which will forever stay in my mind:
    A young guy in a small rubber boat. Around him his friends dying one after the other. Harrowing journey behind him where he has been reduced to drink his own urine and possibly bits of rotting flesh off his friends’ dead bodies. Feeling his time is up. His head in someone’s lap, his body covered in a white shroud-like cloth, shivering of cold, starved of water and food, crying for his mother and in between heart-breaking sobs telling us how he has pawned his father’s small patch of land, has given up his job as a school teacher, the security of home, and all for what? To buy this one-way ticket to death, this ticket to hell, this ticket to a boat which has become his coffin.. crying out before dying: forgive me Ma, forgive me Baba, will you ever forgive me??
    Hadn’t cried in a long time - my heart, today three days after having watched Deshantori, still freezes when that scene resurfaces on my mind..

  5. Jalal Aziz Says:

    A fascinating film of the young people of Bangladesh. I enjoyed the ending, reflecting a bright proud optimism for Bangladesh as a nation. At least that is what we all hope for.

  6. Suborna Says:

    I watched the movie last night. It is 4 o’clock in the morning and I still have not been able to go to sleep. This movie has not only rekindled my love for our Bangladesh, but also have affirmed my plans for doing something constructive for Bangladesh. I am a ‘Probashi’ who lives in America for last 16 years but who has Bangladesh in her heart every single day.

    I urge everyone to watch this movie. I urge all the new generation like me to watch this movie and promise ourselves that we have to do something for Bangladesh today. Not in the future - but Today. Our country needs us NOW. The geographic distance does not matter if we have the spirit. We desparately needed something like this to energize ourselves. Thanks for making such a fascinating film for us.
