AFD screens documentary film ‘Bhabnagar’ tomorrow

Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) is going to screen a one and half-hour documentary film titled ‘Bhabnagar’ (Mystic Realm) by Monjurul Haque tomorrow evening at its Auditorium Nouvelle Vague in Dhanmondi of the capital.  

Almost two hundred years ago, Lalon started arranging congregations, known as Shadhu Shongo (In the Company of Saints), at Chheuria, Kushtia. He invited bauls, minstrels and mystics to this consecrated congregation to share and exchange understandings and views. This grew into a tradition with formal rituals and to this day, Lalon devotees—spanning multiple generations—continue arranging such ‘Shadhu Shongo’.

Directed by Monjurul Haque, the documentary film ‘Bhabnagor’ (Mystic Realm) ethnographically documents the entirety of this practice. Being in the making for more than thirteen years, from 2004 to 2017, the documentary observed numerous ‘Shadhu Shongo’ and brought together live recordings of Baul songs performed during the observances as well as thoughts and views of the devotees. Now an independent filmmaker, Haque previously worked as an editor and cinematographer with the renowned filmmaker Tareque Masud.

A discussion with the director will follow the film screening.

The event is open to all.

Where: AFD, 26 Mirpur Road

When: 7pm, tomorrow
