Made in Bangladesh, directed by Internationally acclaimed Bangladeshi filmmaker Rubaiyat Hossain, released its official trailer on Friday. The feature film recently received its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival (TIIF), under the Contemporary World Cinema category last September.

The story of the film revolves around a character named Shimu, who portrays a worker in the ready-made garment (RMG) sector. The character was based on a real woman who helped the team out with dialogues and other important details.

The film also explores how the garments industry of Bangladesh has helped to empower women and provided them socio-economic independence, by depicting the struggles and successes of female RMG workers.

This is Rubaiyat’s third feature length film after Meherjaan (2011) and Under Construction (2015). The project was co-produced by Bangladesh, France, Denmark and Portugal. It was financed by France’s CNC fund, Norway’s Sørfond Plus, the EU’s Eurimages fund and Denmark’s Danish Film Institute fund.  

The film was also financed by Pyramid Films and Pyramid International, the French distributor and international sales agent for the film.

Production phases of the film began on April 17 last year, and were shot in different locations of Dhaka and Gazipur over 36 days.

Made in Bangladesh features Rikita Nandini Shimu, Deepanwita Martin, Mayabe Rahman, Novera Rahman and Parvin Paru in the lead roles, along with Mustafa Monwar, Shatabdi Wadud, Joyraaj, and Momena Chowdhury. 

Rubaiyat went to Cannes Film Festival this year as the producer of Mahde Hasan’s Sand City. She had previously attended Locarno Open Doors three times and attended the Script Station at Berlinale.
