Mahmud Hasan Kayesh's "House of Light" has been selected to be screened at the 12th edition of the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival – Ethnofest.
This year the festival will run from 25 November till 5 December.
Earlier, "House of Lights" was nominated for United Kingdom's "One World Media Awards".
The film, directed and edited by Mahmud Hasan Kayesh, is an intimate portrayal of a family. Mahmud shot the entire film on his mobile phone while he was voluntarily self-quarantined with his family in an apartment in Dhaka.
Mahmud received a master's degree in film-making from the University of the West of Scotland in Glasgow, United Kingdom, reports Prothom Alo.
At present, he is a full-time faculty at Independent University of Bangladesh.
The festival, held annually in November since 2011, presents the best ethnographic films including short and feature-length anthropological documentaries.
The documentaries are the product of research conducted by scientists of visual anthropology or relative fields.
