DUFS film festival ends Wednesday

Update : 22 May 2013, 04:21 AM

Curtain falls on the four-day film festival organised by Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS) Wednesday with the screening of “The Secret in their eyes,” “Dancer in the Dark” and “Shunte Ki Pao.”

The festival titled “Films for Fresher’s” drew huge crowd on the last three days at the auditorium of TSC. With the screening of some timeless movies from different corners of the world, the festival is being treated as a rendezvous of film lovers in the city.

The winner of “Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film” in 2009, Spanish movie “The Secret in Their Eyes,” will be screened at 10am. Directed by Juan José Campanella, the film features a retired legal counselor who writes a novel hoping to find closure for one of his past unresolved homicide cases and for his unreciprocated love with his superior - both of which still haunt him decades later.

At 1pm people will enjoy the 2000 Danish musical drama film “Dancer in the Dark,” winner of the “Palme d'Or,” at the Cannes. Directed by Lars von Trier, the film depicts an east European girl goes to America with her young son, expecting it to be like a Hollywood film.

Bangladeshi film “Shunte Ki Pao” directed by Kamar Ahmed Simon will be the concluding film of the festival and will be screened at 6pm. The winner of the “Best Film” award at this year’s “Paris Cinema Du Reel” brought immense glory to our country.

The film, based on the lives of residents of a small village in coastal Bangladesh, had been screened at the biggest documentary festival in the world, IDFA, and was the opening film at Dok Leipzig, the oldest documentary festival. The film is continuing to receive wonderful response from the world of cinema.
