SCREENSHOT: Asia Film Festival "Rehana Maryam Noor"

This is a past event.

Join us for the opening night of the SCREENSHOT: Asia Film Festival with a screening of the film Rehana Maryam Noor. When an assistant professor of medicine witnesses a student storming out of a respected older colleague’s office in tears, she finds herself drawn into an all-consuming quest for justice that is further aggravated by domestic pressures and her daughter’s troubles at school. Painting a portrait of the systemic sexism and abuses of power that push one of the few dissenters into a spiral of obsession, Rehana Maryam Noor hinges on a fearless performance by newcomer Azmeri Haque Badhon, who lends the heroine a complex mix of egotism, moral fervor, and repressed anger. The film took home two awards at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, winning Best Performance by an Actress for Badhon and the Jury Grand Prize for director Abdullah Mohammed Saad.  For more information about the film and the festival, click here.
