Nasimul Hasan and Ahmed Khan Hirok jointly wrote the script of Tomorrow
Tomorrow, an animated film on climate change crisis, that tells a tale of a young boy who teams up with children his age and stops the world from collapsing, is all set to premiere on November 23.
The movie will be aired on Deepto TV on November 29 at 7pm.
This announcement was made on at a press briefing on the film at the Deepto TV office on November 12.
Tomorrow is a story of a young boy Ratul who encounters a supernatural being, Batasher Buro (Old man of the wind ), one night. He shows him the melting Antarctic ice and a vision of two possible futures: a pessimistic future in which much of Bangladesh has been disastrously submerged by rising sea levels, and a more optimistic future in which fossil fuels have been replaced with renewable energy. Understanding the gravity of climate change crisis, Ratul takes a stand.
Mohammad Shihab Uddin, director of the 25-minutes-long film said making an animated movie takes a lot of time and patience.
“It took two years to make Tomorrow,” he said.
The film has been produced by Kazi Zahin Hasan and Kazi Zeeshan Hasan.
Kazi Zeeshan Hasan, producer of the film, said it takes around one crore taka to make an animated movie like Tomorrow.
Fuad Ahmed Chowdhury, chief executive officer of Deepto TV, said they are willing to collaborate with the government and nongovernmental organizations to screen the film in different schools across the country.
“It is our moral obligation, as a media outlet, to create awareness among the younger generation about the climate change crisis we are battling with,” he said.
He said although the target audience is the younger generation, people of any age group can enjoy the movie.
Scriptwriter Nasimul Hasan said: “ We hope all our children will act like the character Ratul in future.”
Nasimul Hasan and Ahmed Khan Hirok jointly wrote the script of Tomorrow.
Ibrahim Azad, head of news of Deepto TV, said Tomorrow is an animated film which is no less than the animated movies made abroad.
This movie has been produced at Cycore Studios.
