Bangladeshi film ‘Adim’ (The Instinct) directed by Juboraj Shamim has been selected for Moscow International Film Festival.  The film will compete for the main competition category of the festival. The official website for the film festival revealed the name of the 12 films selected for the main category on August 12.

The film ‘Adim’ depicts the true scenario of slums, showcasing how poverty leads to illegal activities such as drug dealing. The cast of the movie includes Badshah, Shohagi, Dulal, and Sadek. 

The shooting of the film took place at the Tongi slum, with actual slum dwellers. Bangladesh and Netherlands have jointly produced the 84-minute film.

Director Juboraj sold shares of his film for only BDT 5000, so that he could raise funds to produce the film.

The 44th Moscow International Film Festival will run from August 26 to September 2 and the world premiere of ‘Adim’ will take place on August 30.

Juboraj Shamim and Mohamma d Nuruzzaman—the film's executive producer—are expected to arrive in Moscow on August 27.

 Earlier, in 2019, Mostofa Sarwar Farooki’s ‘Shanibar Bikel’ (Saturday Afternoon) was selected for the prestigious Moscow International Film Festival. The film also won ‘The Russian Film Critics’ award and the ‘Kommersant Weekend’ prize at the festival.
