Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS) rolled out a two-day program titled ‘Bangladesh at 50’ to join the country-wide celebration of the golden jubilee of independence.

To mark the unique occasion, the student organization held public screenings of Liberation War-themed films and documentaries on March 25-26 at the TSC premises.



On March 25, filmmaker Kawsar Chowdhury’s documentary ‘Sei Rater Kotha Bolte Esechi,’ which won the top prizes upon release at Bangladesh Documentary Film Festival and South Asia Film Festival in 2003, was screened at 7pm, followed by late director Tareque Masud and Catherine Masud’s iconic 1995 documentary ‘Muktir Gaan.'
