JALIA (The Fishermen)

6 years ago


The Dhepa is a small river of Dinajpur which is situated in the northern part of Bangladesh. This film has focused on 10-12 fishermen families that have been residing at Karnai village. Fishing, the traditional profession of the community, is unable to survive with the changing waters of Dhepa. The impact of manmade disasters have adversely affected the fish in the river and this has taken a toll on these fishermen and their families and has them rethinking about their profession in such uncertain conditions.
