A documentary titled ‘Satyajuger Satyaraja’ detailing different key events in the history of Bangladesh was premiered at a programme held at Liberation War Museum on Thursday.
The documentary, directed by Nahidur Rahim Chowdhury, has been produced by the museum marking the historic March 7 speech by country’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, which has been included in the memory of the World International Register maintained by UNESCO.
The documentary gives the viewers a glimpse into election of 1954, 1969 mass movement, election of 1970, historic March 7 speech, mass killings by the Pakistani occupation forces on March 25, formation of provisional government-in-exile on April 10 and others. The documentary presents the historical events with the song Bangabandhu Bandana by Baul Torab Ali Shai playing in the background.
Filmmaker Moshiuddin Shaker, cultural personality M Hamid, filmmaker Shameem Akhtar and others were present as guests at the programme.
Poet Rabiul Hossain, the member secretary of Liberation War Museum, gave the welcome speech at the event.
‘Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was the architect of independent Bangladesh. We cannot forget the sacrifices he had made for the country,’ said Rabiul Hossain.
‘Our liberation war was fought in many fronts. International media played a vital role during the war. Rare video footages of our liberation war should be collected as such footages can teach the younger generation about our nation’s history,’ said Shameem Akhtar.
Besides, an exhibition titled ‘Bishwajurey Dhonito Protidhonito Bangabandhur Bhashon’ also began at LWM on Thursday. The exhibition features articles published on Sheikh Mujibur Rahman before and after the liberation war in newspapers like New York Times, The Daily Ittefaq, Pakistan Observer, The Gurdian, The Sun, Dainik Ajad, Times, Japan Times and others.
The exhibition will end on March 17.
