Thank you for screening here, it was a time stamp of jute workers suffering.
A perfect documentary.
What a strong cinema!!! I'm spell bound, words are lost, humanity is lost. Cinema should be like this hard and hitting....... silence id infinity.....love to the filmmaker
The ironical suicide by hanging will stay with me forever. An honest depiction of honest wage-earners of Bangladesh.
This film deserves much reach to its audience, ASAP! I hope all the best for this. History should be stored in proper manner and this film is totally worth to that. Thankk you, Molla Sagar for bringing this. I was fascinated, sad and its quite a mixed filling that I am unable to share. It was emotional for me. Thanks so much!
captured the history of struggle
Melt the heart, Salute to the makers
The film is a vivid record of a time when the country's one most important sector was pushed to gradual death. It is jute, ‘the golden fiber’ as it was once called, for it had fed millions in both farming and industrial sectors. Jute sector rose to its prominence in Bengal under the British rule. The farmers mastered the crafts of cultivating and processing the fiber while a new set of workers, jute-mill workers, emerged as an industrial force skilled in jute-mill operations. After Bangladesh gained independence in 1971, the whole sector was nationalized that hardly benefited the nation. But onslaughts hit hardest the industry in the 1980s to continue in the '90s and the later decade too. The donors' policy of strict retrenchment of the sector, which the Bangladesh government did not opposed to, resulted in the shutdown of the factories one after another and layoffs of thousands of workers. 'Siren', focusing on the closure of several jute mills at Khalishpur in Khulna, witnesses the hunger and uncertainty that the workers' families faced. The film records a time when future for these families only kept in store hunger and uncertainty that the workers' families faced. The film records a time when future for these families only kept in store joblessness, starvation, death, suicide and prostitution.
