I am a cinephile, who loves watching and reading cinema and the visual medium of communication. My love for film was triggered while pursuing my Bachelor of Arts degree in Film and Digital Media at the American University of Rome, in Italy. Since then, my motivation was further driven into film and video production.
While pursing my Master of Social Science degree from Independent University, Bangladesh, I have also expanded my perspective more into reading and understanding cinema as a visual form of communication. I wish to combine my skills of contemporary and Avante-garde filmmaking and film analysis to find hidden gems and power of the visual medium of communication
