Description
The Big Village is the first experiment on this order combining the talents of an established producer-director from Bangladesh and the technical know-how of a United Nations Headquarters based crew. Filmed in several villages across southern Asia, the theme of the film is the New International Economic Order. It is a story of people whose lives are caught in rhythms that have ruled for a thousand years, while, at the same time, they are
conscious of societies existing at other levels.
