bamboo stories

Accompanying the exhibition Bengal Stream at the German Architecture Museum (until 20 October), which presents the young, vibrant architecture scene of Bangladesh, we will be showing some films from this rather unknown film country in August and September at our cinema.

With breathtaking shots from Bangladesh, filmmaker Shaheen Dill-Riaz introduces the viewer to the rough world of a handful of men who have been felling bamboo for generations and transporting the wood with huge rafts to the wholesalers in the capital Dhaka. The journey over 300 kilometres with 25,000 tree trunks takes over a month and is full of dangers. In addition to the rapids of the river, thieves and pirates lurk for easy prey.
