শুনতে কি পাও! (Shunte Ki Pao!/ Are You Listening!)

By the coastal belts of Bangladesh, in a small village named ‘Sutarkhali’, RAKHI (27) lives with her man SOUMEN (32) and their son RAHUL (6). Fighting against all the odds of the woods, along with around a 100 families, they cultivate the land for generations. On May 25, 2009 when RAHUL is only 4 years old, a tidal surge hits the coastal belts of Bangladesh. For RAKHI, SOUMEN and RAHUL life is not the same anymore. 'Are You Listening!' is about RAKHI’s hope to ensure a dignified future for her son RAHUL. It's about her jobless husband SOUMEN's frustration for failing to provide for his family and about a community’s struggle to get back the land they have lost.

Seasons change topography, even relations… Yet after the rain... They go out with spades and shovels to reclaim the life again, Are You Listening!
