The Salt In Our Waters - English subtitled

When a sculptor visits a remote fishing village on the Bangladeshi Delta, he finds himself center stage in a primal conflict between land and sea, man and nature, past and future.

Time & Tickets

For his latest art installation, Rudro journeys to a remote mangrove isle on the Bangladeshi Delta, a day's boat ride and a world away from modern, crowded Dhaka. Welcomed by the local fishermen and their leader Chairman, Rudro's modern ideas and lifelike sculptures enchant the village boys and his landlord's daughter. But when the local Ilish catch proves elusive, the elders blame Rudro’s idolatry for the curse of empty nets. In this vanishing land where sea and sky merge, a storm is brewing and change – welcome or not — is coming.
