One of the best fictional documentary on Liberation war of Bangladesh.
19 March 2007 | by exdeznationSee all my reviews

One of the best documentary on Liberation war of Bangladesh. A journey of a cultural team of Bangladesh to inspire the Refugees and the Freedom fighters of Bangladesh. The film zeroes into a troupe of musicians traveling through the refugee camps and zones of war during the Liberation War in 1971. The film blends documentary and fictional genres in a musical structure to tell the story of the birth of a nation and the ideals of secularism and tolerance on which it was founded. The filmmakers, Tareque and Catherine Masud, have combined footage of a cultural troupe and their activities, shot by American filmmaker Lear Levin in 1971, with historic footage collected from archives around the world.
