“Rehana Maryam Noor” becomes the first Bangladeshi film to feature in Cannes Film Festival major segment

France's Cannes Film Festival, arguably the most prestigious film festival in the world, has officially selected Bangladeshi filmmaker Abdullah Mohammad Saad's film "Rehana Maryam Noor" in its Un Certain Regard section.

It is a major segment of the festival, and "Rehana Maryam Noor" is the first Bangladeshi film to be featured in it.

Un Certain Regard, meaning "from another angle", presents 20 films with unusual styles and non-traditional stories seeking international recognition.

The film, which features Azmeri Haque Badhon, Afia Tabassum Borno, Afia Zahin, Kazi Sami Hasan and Tuhin Tajimul, among others, is based on a medical college teacher, Rehana Maryam Noor, who happens to witness an unfortunate incident on her way home. On behalf of her student, she fights the system, going against all odds.

Abdullah Mohammad Saad was the first winner in The Daily Star-Standard Chartered Bank's Celebrating Life Award in 2008. He gained many accolades with his first film "Live From Dhaka", in 2016.

This year's Cannes Film Festival will start from July 6.
