The Director’s Statement

The Dreaming Vendors (…Ebong Shaupno Jatree) is a documentary film on cross coastal trafficking, economic migration and lack of human security. The film depict an extra ordinary horrific journey, human sufferings and the struggle for survival by people who only endeavored for a better life in the backdrop of lack of human security. I myself first met 200 stranded boat people in Mae Sot, Thailand in April 2007 and started documenting with different media tool. I had to struggle 3 years to complete the documentary.

I would like to reach 10 million people of Bangladesh with this film to raise awareness of the severe problem of human insecurity.
