The Wheel

Dir. Morshedul Islam, 1993, 70min

The film depicts the journey of two bullock-cart drivers through rural Bangladesh who are assigned to deliver a corpse to his village. Wherever they go, they face hostility from the villagers. They never can find the village; what should they do now with the corpse? A parable that combines State violence with rural imagery, it won the Grand Prix at the Dunkerque film festival in France in 1994 and also bagged three awards at Mannheim .
