Rehana Maryam Noor (Abdullah Mohammad Saad, Bangladesh/Singapore/Qatar, 2021, 107 min., Bengali with English subtitles)
A young professor at a Bangladeshi medical college, Rehana struggles to keep the harmony between work and family. Her life starts to spiral out of control one evening after she witnesses a crying student storming out of a professor’s office. Impacting her deeply, Rehana gradually descends into obsession, seeking retribution, just as she receives a complaint from the school about her six-year-old daughter’s unusual behavior. Rehana embarks on an extraordinary journey to find justice for her student and her daughter, all the while grappling with her ego, sense of morality, and repressed anger. (~Cannes Film Festival)
