Film description

Rehana is a tough and uncompromising teacher at the Medical Academy in Dhaka. Struggles with reality are her daily bread – she single-handedly raises her little daughter and supports the family. One day she witnesses her superior molesting one of the students. Punishing the perpetrator becomes her life mission and she will readily push boundaries and make sacrifices to achieve it. But will the institution that she is a part of let her bring the guilty man to justice?

Rehana embarks on an angry journey through a labyrinth of corridors, offices and classrooms. The camera tries to keep up with her, cornering her in the narrow, dark-blue frames, creating an emotionless record of her lonely mission. Made with a distressing tremor, reminiscent of the best achievements of Iranian cinema, "Rehana" is an outstanding, fascinating portrait of a heroine that is nowhere near perfect.

With his second film, tense like a full-blooded thriller, Saad confirms that he is an incredibly talented artist with a critical outlook on the everyday reality of his country. But the success of the film would not be possible without Badhon, who resembles a bullet shot with great power towards the corrupt system and the indifferent society.

Abdullah Mohammad Saad

Bron in 1985 in Bangladesh, before he turned to film, he studied pedagogy at Dhaka University. In his own studio, he produced short films and TV commercials. He debuted with the film "Live From Dhaka," which cost 10,000 dollars and received a Siver Screen Award for Best Director at the 27th Singapore IFF.

His subsequent directorial endeavor, "Rehana," is the first film from Bangladesh shown in one of the main sections of the festival in Cannes.
