‘Legend of the Loom’, the documentary was produced in partnership with the Bangladesh National Museum and Aarong. Drik undertook in 2014 to tell the story of this fragile, ephemeral fabric. The project’s aim was to research the lost cotton plant, to tell its authentic story and to inspire the revival of Bengal muslin.

The documentary will be 42mins long and there will be a stall for selling of books and sari outside the auditorium. The screening will be followeed by a 15mins Q/A session with Mr Saiful Islam over video conferencing.

N.B.: The Registration is just to reserve your seat in advance, the screening is open for all anyway.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
