Independent filmmaker Reshmi Ahmed’s two documentary films, “My Protest” and “Depannita - A Lady with Versatile Talents” have been screened at Goethe-Institut Bangladesh on Sunday.

This screening was jointly organised by Goethe-Institut Bangladesh and International Film Initiative of Bangladesh (IFIB), as part of their monthly film screening and discussion series “Through Her Eyes - A space to watch and discuss films with women filmmakers of Bangladesh”.

Director Reshmi Ahmed, a dedicated worker at the Gonojagoron Mancha, made these two films based on the aftermath of Bangabandhu’s killing in 1971 and the scenario she observed where the war-criminals (known as ‘Rajakars’) got premium opportunities to rise in power- until the emersion of 2013’s historic Shahbag protest, also known as the ‘Gonojagoron Mancha’.

Joined by film enthusiasts, makers, students and journalists- the screening was followed by an interactive question-answer session.
