About the filmmaker

My name is Mashiat Sharif. I was a student of Chittagong Grammar School and I am currently a student of Asian University for Women. My major is Economics. I come from a very conservative Chittagonian Muslim family. I am currently the president of AUW Photography Club. I have previously interned for NGO's like Jonakir Alo and WBB Trust. During my internship at WBB Trust, I developed a fascination towards short film making as I directed most of their promotion videos. This is my very first documentary. It was a very challenging task for me but I hope I could get my message through to the audience.
