Documentary Filmmaking Masterclass: Kamar Ahmad Simon, Director

Kamar Ahmad Simon, filmmaker of Are You Listening! (screening in competition, Antenna 2013), presents this masterclass, hosted by Australian filmmaker Tom Zubrycki. Kamar explains how the multi-layered socio-political conflict and the struggle for existence of the individuals in his frames began to affect him in his position behind the camera. In a discussion entitled Missing 359 Dots, we join Kamar as he revisits the three-year journey from the remote coastal belts of Bangladesh to winning Grand Prix in the 35th Cinema du Reel, Paris.
