I didn’t actually make this title, mine was “Bangladeshi Garment Workers”, just to set the record straight. In any case, this was a short film I made for Current TV while visiting Dhaka while showing My Cultural Divide at a film festival there. It was important for me to reconnect with the issues and people while visiting again, and I was really glad to have met a lot of new activists and workers that are trying to make changes to the way things are done. Please take a look and tell me what you think:
Lots of people are watching My Cultural Divide online, and it makes me very happy. I think putting the film online with a CC license was one of the best things I have ever done – it gives me great satisfaction that this issue is in the minds of many people, and the film creates discussion and hopefully creates some good. I am about to shoot another documentary, albeit one not as focused on politics as my first, so it is exciting that this doc lives on in this space.
