The Clay Bird

2002 NR

Young Anu (Nurul Islam Bablu) navigates an uncertain life as East Pakistan heads toward revolution in Tareque Masud's drama. Anu's fundamentalist father, Kazi, ignores his depressed mother; his little sister is ill; and his uncle grows bitter toward the military rule. To ensure Anu's devoutness, Kazi sends him to a strict Muslim boarding school, where Anu struggles to adapt to his harsh new surroundings while political tensions ruin his family.
