“I didn’t think I would get this far in the competition. It was a very personal film, and in my opinion, made for a niche audience. The fact that it spoke to a wider audience than I was hoping is an enjoyable If my film can add a bit to the global film movement, that will be my reward as a Bangladeshi filmmaker,” Taimur said, when asked to comment.
