Genre, warehouse shoots & the "alternative" cinema of Bangladesh with Moshari’s Nuhash Humayun
Thursday 20 October 2022, by ,
The end of the world forces two sisters together, inside a mosquito net, just to survive—but first they must survive each other. Moshari is a deeply atmospheric and haunting short, whose horror tropes and sense of dread only serve to amplify the human drama at its heart.
We chat to Bangali filmmaker Nuhash Humayun whose Oscar-qualified short horror premiered at South By Southwest. He tells us about his foray into filmmaking, the ways in which genre films can breakdown language and cultural barriers, and how the Bangladeshi film industry has emerged as a more experimental alternative to mainstream Bollywood.
