National Film Award-winning producer Ashraf Shishir’s Liberation War-based short film ‘Juddhota Chilo Shadintar- The UNSUNG’ in three international film festivals in Italy, India, and England. 

It is known that the ‘17th Ischia Film Festival’ will be held in Italy from Saturday to July 6, ‘20th Rainbow International Film Festival’ in London from July 21 to July 28 and ‘3rd Wular Lake International Short-Film Festival’ will be held in Kashmir from August 26 to August 28. This short film of Bangladesh will be displayed in these festivals. 

Regarding this, Ashraf Shishir said, “Our Liberation War is our glorious history. Through the film, people from different countries will know about the history of our Liberation War. That’s why we are happy.” 

The short film has been built on the true story of the Liberation War. In the middle of December 1971 when the Pakistani army members were coming towards Dhaka, the freedom fighters created resistance against them. 

A bomb exploded a span of the country’s largest railway bridge Hardinge Bridge from a plane with the help of the Allied force. As a result, Pakistani soldiers became disbanded. The incident of Pakhsi railway office of Ishwardi still stands as a witness of the Liberation War. That story will come out in the story of the film.

The film already received the censor clearance for display. Various people including Arannya Rana, Imran, Soma, Bonna, Sajeeb, Manik, Shuvo, Panna, Deep, Rabbi, Sachchu, Alok, Al-Amin, Hasan, Roich played in different roles. Its music is directed by Rafayet Newaz. The film was produced by DGSugar. 

Meanwhile, the short film ‘Juddhota Chilo Shadintar- The UNSUNG’ has already been shown in 15 International Film Festival such as United States, United Kingdom, Colombia, Iran, Russia, Italy, Nigeria, and India. The film includes short film corners in this year’s 72nd Cannes Film Festival.
