Nuhash Humayun’s ‘Moshari’ wins Oscar-qualifying prize
The horror short film "Moshari" directed by Nuhash Humayun, has won the Atlanta Film Festival Jury Prize for Best Narrative Short, an Oscar-qualifying award.
Nuhash shared the news himself on his verified Facebook account, thanking his team, family, and colleagues.
"Moshari" stars "No Dorai" actress Sunerah Binte Kamal and Nuhash's niece Nairah Onora Saif, as two sisters trying to survive an apocalypse.
In the film, when the world is overrun with bloodthirsty creatures, the last of mankind perseveres in Dhaka by spending their nights inside the moshari (mosquito net) — the only known shelter from the unknown threat.
Two sisters, Apu and Ayra, must navigate this strange new world to survive. However, their strained relationship is becoming as much of a threat as the dangers outside.
The film has also been selected for Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes & SITGES Festival International de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya's Fantastic 7 segment.
