Dhaka [Bangladesh] : A new biography based documentary seeks to capture in reel the story of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina potraying her as a daughter and a leader and her journey associated with the genesis of the country against a tragic backdrop

The movie ‘Hasina-A Daughter’s Tale’ is a collaboration initiated jointly by a not-for-profit policy research organization, the Centre for Research and Information (CRI) and Applebox Films’ founder and director Rejaur Rahman Khan Piplu.
The project, says its makers is the culmination of a 5-year-long attempt to capture the story behind the Prime Minister and her experience as human being, not a politician.
