Bangladeshi filmmaker Rezwan Shahriar Sumit’s upcoming film “Nonajoler KabboThe Salt in Our Waters” has recently been granted the prestigious Aide aux cinémas du monde fund—worth €80,000(more than Tk77 lakhs). Sumit and his French co-producer Ilann Girard had jointly applied for this grant in December 2017. 

After being reviewed by three different committees, in the last seven months, the project received Aide aux cinémas du monde funding. The fund is managed by the Centre National du Cinéma et de l'Image Animée (CNC) and Institut français, which is dedicated to international co-productions. The prestigious grant was jointly created by France’s Ministry for Culture and Communication, France’s Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, CNC, and the Institut français.

Dhaka Tribune’s Showtime asked Sumit about the project’s latest developments. He said: “The film recently wrapped production and is preparing to move into its post-production phase. We shot in various locations on the Southern coasts of Bangladesh, for two months, with a team comprising both a local and international crew.” 

The film stars: Fazlur Rahman Babu, Shatabdi Wadud, Rosey Siddiqui, Tasnuva Tamanna, Titash Zia, Ashok Bepari, Mukul Rahman, and Iqbal Mamun—in the major roles.

The project is a co-production between Sumit’s company mypixelstory and France’s ARSAM International. Popular Bangladeshi filmmaker Amitabh Reza Chowdhury’s production company Half Stop Down is the line production partner of the film. 

“Nonajoler Kabbo,” Sumit's first feature-length script, also won Bangladesh's National Film Grant in 2017, and a writing grant from Director Spike Lee in 2016. It was a semifinalist in Sundance Screenwriters Lab in 2017 and was also invited to the Film Bazaar Co-Production Market in Goa, India in 2016—where it generated considerable buzz.
