My film deals with the subject of the search of soul . In the language of film I have tried to trace this journey seeking answers for it in the existing political system and human relationships. My crew of cinematographer, cameraman , editor— all seemed to become a part of this search. It was very surprising almost shocking when one day while making the film my cinematographer Musaur Rahman went missing. A sensitive person that he is, his disappearance meant he had his own thoughts to address to . When we were sure that no untoward incident had happened to him , we came to know that the idea of the embodiment of soul and seeking for it in complex life-situations had created an explicit impression upon him and he needed to get away from a duty-bound life in search of the answers to his own queries regarding human existence.
As a film-maker I feel humbled that my film could raise in his heart this urge , these questions which go beyond the structured and formalized existence that we are expected to live. Isn’t film-making also about provoking thoughts that will lead humanity to the fields of newer realizations, deeper insights into life and its intricacies?
