Bata leather, meaning of Eid.MP4 [01:29]
The festival of Eid al-Adha is celebrated outdoors in Bangladesh. We took our videos right in our neighborhood of Baridhara in Dhaka. Eid is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isma'il) as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a sheep— to sacrifice instead

Ramadan Mubarak Special [13:39]
During the blessed month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs during the daylight hours. As a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God, and practice self-sacrifice, Ramadan is much more than just not eating and drinking. Muslims are called upon to use this month to re-evaluate their lives in light of Islamic guidance. We are to make peace with those who have wronged us, strengthen ties with family and friends, do away with bad habits -- essentially to clean up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings. The Arabic word for "fasting" (sawm) literally means "to refrain" - and it means not only refraining from food and drink, but from evil actions, thoughts, and words. During Ramadan, every part of the body must be restrained. The tongue must be restrained from backbiting and gossip. The eyes must restrain themselves from looking at unlawful things. The hand must not touch or take anything that does not belong to it. The ears must refrain from listening to idle talk or obscene words. The feet must refrain from going to sinful places. In such a way, every part of the body observes the fast. Therefore, fasting is not merely physical, but is rather the total commitment of the person's body and soul to the spirit of the fast. Ramadan is a time to practice self-restraint; a time to cleanse the body and soul from impurities and re-focus one's self on the worship of God.

Korbani.flv [03:58]
Once I was reading a book about micro financial loans in Bangladesh that persuaded me to start shooting a film on that subject. Two weeks after I bought plane tickets for Kolkata and quit my job. In the beginning of November, I was in a bus, on my way for a country I didn't know anything about, even that most of the people don't speak English over there! Everybody was constantly staring at me or following me, all signs were written in Bengali letters, I could never know were I was .. This was really scary ... for the few first moments. Then, I had to experiment Bengali incredible sense of hospitality: anytime, anywhere no one would ever let me go to the hotel or the restaurant, although it wasn't difficult at all to travel as everybody just always pushed me in the right bus. In Dhaka City I met Sanjida Rahman, an incredible business woman that had more guts and grit than can be imagined. She took me to her family village Dhubaria, where I shot this short documentary about the muslim festival Eid al-Adha with the help of her oncle, AK Sayeedur Rahman. Back in Paris since two months I am working further on my film project before I can fly back to Bangladesh.
