Bangladesh is densely populated and faced with devastating floods almost every year. Predictions suggest that climate change is only going to make the situation worse. So the population can do little else than learn to live with this apparent fact of life, and keep on rebuilding everything that is destroyed by the wind and water.
“Are You Listening” is a powerful visual narrative about that most fundamental human instinct – the will to survive, against all resistance and reason.
“A gorgeously shot observational documentary… Filming from an unusually low camera angle, he (the director) almost physically drags the viewer into a community”.
International Documentary Film Festival of Amsterdam (IDFA)
Awarding the 'Golden Conch' the jury cited -
"Careful, patient and respectful observation- bordering on meditation, almost – brings us closer to a certain struggle, ending in the triumph of solidarity and an affirmation of the unbreakable in human spirit. Moments of exquisite beauty punctuate the film as its long-term commitment to the people filmed affirms the extraordinary power of concerted labour, as well as the fragile lives of individuals with their daily joys and fears. Living on the outpost, as yet another natural assault threatens to engulf them, the world can ignore them at its own pril".
