Rohingya (2021) Hindi

Rohingya is a documentary feature film about the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The Rohingya are an ethnic Muslim minority from Myanmar’s Rakhine State who have suffered several decades of persecution by the Burmese government. Many fled to neighbouring Bangladesh and other countries in search of safety. Following widespread ethnic cleansing by the Burmese army in August 2017, a mass exodus of over 700,000 Rohingya took place from Myanmar to Cox’s Bazar, where one million refugees now live. Filmed over several months in Cox’s Bazar, Rohingya is an observational, poetic record of the community’s everyday life, social rituals, and the camp’s unique landscapes. It is a document of humanity amid one of the greatest displacements of our time.
