Taubman Cinema: Runaway
Director: Amit Ashraf │R
The crowded city of Dhaka is the perfect hiding place for cowardly men seeking to disappear. Babu, a dubious rickshawalla, has made it his life mission to find these runaways and return one of them - a politician named Akbar - back to his family. But Akbar is a man with powerful connections and a race against time begins as Babu tries to return him home before their pursuer catches up. Watch the trailer here. In Bangla with English subtitles.
This screening includes a Q&A with filmmaker Amit Ashraf.
Presented as part of the On Screen/In Person series, which tours
