Meherjaan, a feature film about a Bangladeshi woman’s love affair with a Pakistani soldier during Bangladesh’s 1971 war of independence is back by popular demand. Join us at T2F this Thursday for a second screening.
During the war in 1971, Meher falls in love with a soldier from the enemy side. When her love is discovered, she is shamed and silenced by her family and society. Today, 38 years after the war, Meher has a visitor she cannot turn down. Sarah, a ‘war-child’ who was given away for adoption, has come back to piece together her past. Together, these two women must re-tell history through their stories in order to cut through the stigmas and walk into light.
“If the director’s goal was to make her audience think, to question, to re-examine, and to open up the space for a full, honest, and doubtless painful and contentious discourse of 1971, then she succeeded magnificently.” Zafar Sobhan
