Nuhash Humayun announces his first feature film, “Moving Bangladesh”
Nuhash Humayun is one of the most promising young filmmakers in the country, proving his pedigree with many web projects, short films, TVCs and music videos. He is also one of the directors of Bangladesh's first anthology film "Iti Tomari Dhaka", which was recently selected for Oscar nomination in the International category.
Nuhash has recently announced his feature film "Moving Bangladesh", produced by Arifur Rahman and Bijon Imtiaz. Besides direction, the story of the film is also written by Nuhash. In a recent conversation with The Daily Star, he shared insights and more details about the film.
"Moving Bangladesh" is said to be based on the true story of a young university student in Dhaka, who is tired of being stuck in traffic, and life itself. Demanding change, he and his friends struggle to create a motorcycle-based ridesharing service that may change the way we travel in Bangladesh, forever. In fact, it may even change himself. This was the beginning of something special - the creation of the ridesharing service we know now as Pathao.
The film has been selected for the new edition of NFDC Goa Film Bazaar Coproduction Market. It is the only Bangladeshi film represented this year. Even in the film's writing and development stage, the project has gained international attention, being selected for the Open Doors Consultancy of Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland in their second phase (two other projects from Bangladesh were previously selected).
