London Bengali Film Festival 2023

The Golden Wings of Watercocks

London Bengali Film Festival kicks off with Muhammad Quayum’s poignant debut feature on the livelihoods and struggles of the peasants living in the ‘Haor’ (marshland) regions of Bangladesh.

The 6th edition of the London Bengali Film Festival opens with this climate change oeuvre.

Historically trapped in poverty formed by the confluence of social exploitation and climate injustice, the rice farmers survive the most devastating calamities in the backdrop of Bangladesh’s rich folk tradition and cultural heritage. 64-year-old Quayum's directorial debut shared the Best Film Award at the Kolkata International Film Festival (India).
