LIFF Presents: The Salt in Our Waters
1 Jun 2021 - 31 Jul 2021
As part of our LIFF Selects Programme Available until 31st June 2021.
Bangladeshi director Rezwan Shahriar Sumit’s debut feature is one of the highlights of recent South Asian cinema. An artist leaves the bustling capital of Dhaka to a coastal village on the Bangladeshi delta for inspiration. Despite an initial welcome from the local fishermen and the village chairman, the artist’s modern ideas and iconoclastic sculptures soon bring them into conflict over traditional local religious values. Against the backdrop of environmental change and the rising tide, some villagers accuse him and his works of having provoked disastrous weather patterns.
