The Clay Bird (DVD)
Set against a 1960's backdrop leading up to Bangladesh's independence from Pakistan, THE CLAY BIRD tells the story of Anu, a boy sent away by his father to an Islamic school. Far from his family and the warmth of his region's Hindu festivities, Anu struggles to break out of his shell and adapt to the school's harsh monastic life. As the political divisions in the country intensify, an increasing split develops between the school's students, just as Anu's parents find themselves growing apart. Rather than be torn in half, Anu must decide which side he falls upon in this complex tale of tolerance, diversity, and the practice of Islam in a crises-ridden world.
