The first death anniversary of journalist and filmmaker Faisal Rahman Kishwar was observed on Saturday.

Family members of the former Dhaka Tribune journalist organized a doa-mahfil at his grave in Agargaon to mark the day.

Also, a remembrance program was organized at the Transport Chattar at Jahangirnagar University in the afternoon, where teachers, journalists, film activists, writers, politicians, and friends and well-wishers remembered Kishwar.

Praising him as “a man of many talents”, his friends recounted their memories of Kishwar and his dedication to his work, nature, politics and film.

A memorial publication, which includes Kishwar's unpublished write-ups, translated poetries, and write-ups by colleagues and friends on his life and work, was also unveiled at the event.

At the end of the event, Kishwar's documentary film “Bt Brinjal in the Dock” was screened. The film tells the story of the genetically modified venture in Bangladesh from the farmers’ point of view.

Kishwar, former district coordinator for the Dhaka Tribune, was born on September 1, 1983 in Bagerhat. He died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest on March 9 last year.

He had a diverse career and had previously worked for The Independent, UNB and New Age.

Kishwar, who had deep love for nature and was dedicated to farmers and agriculture, was actively involved in filmmaking and was a member of Chalachitra Andolon in his student life.

A graduate of English from Jahangirnagar University, he was also an organizer of Chhabir Larai.
