'SHAMIMA: Memory In My Heart'
Uprooted by the Myanmar military and driven from their home, Ameena Khatun and her Rohingya family live a new life in Balukhali, Bengladesh, amidst daily struggles for provisions and basic human necessities. But while trying to secure basic living this Ramadan, Ameena holds one member of the family of 12 dearest of all: her daughter Shamima who died of starvation on the way from Myanmar. However, the family has no way to remember her by, no photos, no clothing, no mementos. And for Ameena, who can’t draw or speak confidently, the memory of her daughter will be lost to posterity outside her family, except perhaps for this document of a film.
