Birangona: Women of War

Komola Collective's Birangona: Women of War has been nominated for The Offie Award for The TBC Award for all productions that defy traditional categories.

Moryom is a young woman who loves the taste of tamarind, the smell of her mother, and holding her husband’s hand. It is 1971, the year that the Liberation War tears through Bangladesh, and no part of the country is untouched. The Kalboshekhi Storm is coming. In a small village, Moryom and her family await its arrival. Every day, they hide from soldiers in the pond behind their house, while across the country, women and girls are disappearing from streets and homes. When the storm finally hits, it will tear away everything.
