A hard hitting narrative feature with strong anti-misogynist undercurrents, Under Construction is a film about a modern Muslim woman struggling to find herself in the sprawl of urban Bangladesh. A feminist awakening occurs in middle class actress Roya as she reconstructs a famous and politically minded play of Rabindranath Tagore for modern times, reclaiming her agency in the process. Produced at a time when attitudes towards gender roles and modern family dynamics in Bangladesh are going through a societal shift, the innovative camera work and contemporary visual storytelling technique echoes the progressive social message in this film.
Director Rubaiyat Hossain expected in attendance for post-film Q&A.
