Bangladeshi short film ‘Shiuli Kotha’ and German feature film ‘Emerald Green’ will be screened today at the ‘Sunday German Bangla Film Screening’ at Goethe Institut in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.
This programme has been a regular collaboration between Dhaka University Film Society and Goethe Institut which is being held on the last Sunday of every month.

The short film "Shiuli Kotha" is based on a true story. Shiuli is a security guard working in a corporate office. Her husband, Ratan, is an abusive drunkard. He does not like the fact that Shiuli is a working woman but refuses to work himself. One day Ratan decides that Shiuli"s monthly income is not enough. Shiuli"s boss, Hemayet, is concerned by her absence at work and goes to Shiuli"s residence only to find out that she has been forced to become a prostitute. Hemayet rescues Shiuli from Ratan and she starts to live her life as an independent woman.
On the other hand, "Emerald Green" is the stunning conclusion to Kerstin Gier"s Ruby Red Trilogy, picking up where Sapphire Blue left off, reaching new heights of intrigue and romance as Gwen finally uncovers the secrets of the time-traveling society and learns her fate.
