The news of Nuhash Humayun’s inclusion as Anonymous Content and CAA’s client has been featured in Hollywood’s world-famous website Deadline, considered one of the top entertainment websites in the world.
Sharing his excitement about these accolades, Nuhash Humayun told Deadline that his goal is to portray Bangladesh/South Asia free from stereotypes and assumptions.
“The first time I heard my home mentioned in a film was a throwaway line about there being ‘enough food on this table to feed Bangladesh. I love infusing genre stories with deeply personal and cultural identity politics. We have powerful, thrilling, visceral stories to tell.”
“With my incredible team at AC and CAA, I hope to tell intimate personal stories that are also universal,” Nuhash Humayun told Deadline.
According to the acclaimed young filmmaker, “Moshari is a revisionist horror/fantasy that inverts the myth of our part of the world as ‘the third world.”
The original 22-minute horror-fantasy pic was the first film from Bangladesh to premiere in SXSW’s Midnight Shorts Program. It follows sisters Apu (Sunerah Binte Kamal) and Ayra (Nairah Onora Saif), who seek shelter inside archaic mosquito nets - the only way to survive against bloodthirsty monsters - if they can first survive each other.
In addition to SXSW, Humayun’s projects have earned support from Sundance, Film Independent and ScreenCraft. The filmmaker was a ScreenCraft 2022 Film Fund Jury Winner and the first Bangladeshi fellow accepted to the Sundance Screenwriters Intensive.
Nuhash Humayun’s next project is the feature film 'Moving Bangladesh' which is a subversive corporate drama. The film is currently in pre-production.
