The Clay Bird2002
Matir Moina (Bengali: মাটির ময়না ; also spelled Matir Moyna and known in English as The Clay Bird) is a 2002 Bengali drama film directed by Tareque Masud, a Bangladeshi film director. The film's cast includes Nurul Islam Bablu (in his film acting debut), Jayanta Chattopadhyay, and Rokeya Prachy. It deals with Masud's own experiences studying at a madrasah against the increasing tensions in East Pakistan culminating in the Bangladesh War of Liberation. Throughout the film, there are references to historical occurrences in agitated times, and the film portrays these episodes through the human experiences of the young protagonist, his family, and his teachers and peers at the madrasah.
Matir Moina won a number of awards internationally but was initially banned in Bangladesh on the grounds that it dealt with issues sensitive to the religious. The ban was repealed and the DVD version was released on April 16, 2005.
Produced by Catherine Masud Matir Moina was awarded the FIPRESCI Prize in section Directors' Fortnight outside competition at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, and became Bangladesh's first film to compete for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
