Young director Sabbir Ahmed Shohag’s “Ekattorer Din” (English: Day of ‘71) is competing at Busan International Kids and Youth Film Festival this July. It is the only film from Bangladesh competing this year in the 18 and above “ready-action” category. 


Set at the backdrop of the Liberation War, the film follows the struggles of two siblings orphaned during the war. Many years later, a chance encounter with a homeless freedom fighter stirs up buried emotions in the sister. 


Shohag told Showtime: “The homeless man reminds the orphan girl that her parents could also end up on the streets after independence.”


The director plans to attend the festival, which starts on July 11. Of the 19 other films competing this year, 14 are from Korea.


The film made rounds at several local and international film festivals in Bangladesh including Dhaka International Children’s Film Festival. In India, the film was screened at Pune Inter-college International Short Film Festival. 


“Ekattorer Din” features Yeasir Shohag, Ahmed Shohana, Faisal Mahmud Nil, Md Salahuddin, Bannya Bhuiya, Johni khan and Samsul Islam Shopon in central roles.
