The International Film Initiative of Bangladesh (IFIB) is set to screen documentary film Jothorleena at the auditorium of Goethe-Institut in Dhamondi 5pm on Sunday.

The screening is a part of the Through Her Eyes film screening series, organized by IFIB in cooperation with Goethe-Institut Bangladesh. 

Through Her Eyes is an initiative to screen films by female film-makers who are currently working in Bangladesh. At the end of the screenings, the audience are given the opportunity to interact with the film-makers directly. This is the seventh edition of the event.

Directed by Dilara Begum Jolly, Jothorleena is set apart by its aesthetic presentation. It is a uniquely experimental production, stretching the customary generic parameters of a documentary film to transport it from the veridical to the poetic.

The film looks into the impact and aftermath of war, as society strives to rebuild.

The Q&A session after the screening will be moderated by national award winning documentary film-maker Shabnam Ferdousi. Some performance arts videos by the director will be screened for the audience as well.

Dilara Begum Jolly is an award winning print artist, sculptor, installation artist, and painter. She is known for her work highlighting discrimination against women and explicitly presenting feminist perspectives. Jothorleena is her debut documentary film.
