‘Rana Plaza’ film premieres after pushing through Bangladeshi legal barriers

The Supreme court has
lifted the ban placed on the screening less than two weeks after the
Bangladesh High Court cancelled the film’s premiere and theater showing.

The High Court first placed a ban on the premiere of ‘Rana Plaza,’ a film
based on the disastrous collapse of the garment factory in April 2013,
starting from August 24 after a petition filed by trade union leader
Sirajul Islam Rony raised concerns that certain scenes in the film could
negatively affect the garment and textile industry and its workers on a
long-term basis.

However, the four-member Supreme Court has rejected the notion and put a
stay in the High Court’s order. The film’s director, Nazrul Islam Khan,
argued in front of the jury that the film’s story was build around the
heroism of Reshma, one of the garment workers who worked in Rana Plaza and
was rescued after 17 days after the collapse. Shamima Akhter, the film’s
producer added that ‘Rana Plaza’ had already been censored and re-cut
following the court ruling.

Reshma rescue from the factory collapse has been under heavy scrutiny since
news of the film was first release as rumours in Dhaka, Bangladesh suggest
that her story had been fabricated to make rescuers look good.
