‘Bay of Blood’, a documentary film directed by Indian filmmaker Krishnendu Bose, sheds light on the untold suffering and resilience of millions of people over a nine-month period from March to December 1971. The screening was organized by the Bengal Heritage Foundation last week ahead of the 52nd anniversary of “Bijoy Dibosh”, or Liberation of Bangladesh Day, which falls on December 16.
“The film projected the strong sense of the power of an idea – no amount of violence, no amount of oppression can actually kill that,” said Indian High Commissioner to the UK Vikram Doraiswami after the special screening at Leicester Square.
