Runway centres on young Rahul who lives with his family in a small hut next to the runway of the international airport. His mother struggles to support the family by selling milk from a cow bought with a micro credit loan and his sister works long hours in a garment factory. What happens when the disaffected Rahul meets someone who he thinks has it all?

This is the final film of acclaimed director, Tareque Masud, before his tragic death in 2011.

Thanks to Catherine Masud

If this is what Bangladeshi independent film has been hiding, it's time for them to come out into the light. Runway is a remarkably powerful piece of filmmaking, with strong performances, gorgeous cinematography, and supremely confident direction
