Mostofa Sarwar Farooki’s "Shonibar Bikel (Saturday Afternoon)" is scheduled to be screened at the Sydney Film Festival 2019 at the Dendy Opera Cinema Hall.

The director and his wife, actor Nusrat Imrose Tisha, will leave Dhaka on June 9, reports UNB. They are scheduled to attend a question-answer session regarding the film.

Based on the Holy Artisan tragedy, the film is jointly produced by Bangladesh and Germany, and has generated rave reviews even before its release.

The cast of the film includes: Zahid Hasan, Tisha, Mamunur Rashid, Iresh Zaker, Intekhab Dinar, Nader Chowdhury, and Gousul Alam Shaon from Bangladesh. Indian actor Parambrata Chatterjee and Palestinian actor Eyad Hourani  also played major roles in this film.

“Berlin Film Festival’s honorary Silver-Bear-winning cinematographer Aziz Zhambakiyev’s extraordinarily impressive single shot, in the audacious movie ‘Shonibar Bikel,’ takes us into the frightening timeline that replicated the merciless incident [that] happened at a restaurant in Dhaka,” the Sydney Film Fest committee wrote in their program note.

“That is, however, not the main motive of director Farooki; rather, his intention is to portray the humanity among people above social conflicts—such as religion, race, cast—and above terrorism.” 

"Shonibar Bikel" recently participated in the 41st Moscow International Film Festival where it won two independent jury awards.

The film will be screened at Dendy Opera Quays Cinema 1 in East Circular Quay, Sydney on June 10 at 2pm, and June 13 at 8pm (local time).
