Long Periods of Persecution Collected

Proshoon Rahman's documentary, based on the Rohingya crisis, has been ranked 15th in the list

Asian Movie Pulse has recently released a list of 15 best Asian documentaries. Proshoon Rahman's Long Periods of Persecution, based on the Rohingya crisis, made it to the list curated by notable critics.

The outlet noted that 2020, although a bad year for feature films due to a lack of circulation, has provided ample opportunities to the documentary genre, and Asian filmmakers have responded to the pandemic year with resilience and creativity.  

Proshoon Rahman's documentary, featuring interviews with 20 local and international experts, has been ranked 15th in the list. 

The critics noted, "Proshoon Rahman directs a very thorough documentary that focuses exactly on what the title of the film says. His effort to highlight the history of the Rohingyas, both political and ethnical and the events that led them to this situation is more than successful, particularly because it highlights the fact that there is no exact reason for this, apart from, maybe, racism."

"The interviews with the leaders of the refugees and “simple” Rohingya shed light to the case on a personal level, with the scenes where a number of them show the wounds that they carry from the attacks of the Myanmar army being one of the most shocking parts of the documentary," they added. 

Iranian film Khatemeh was unveiled as the best Asian documentary of the year.
