Last Man in Dhaka Central – A documentary by Naeem Mohaiemen
February 23, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Last Man in Dhaka Central (The Young Man Was, Part 3)
Directed by Naeem Mohaiemen
82 min. In English, Dutch, Bangla; English subtitles
Mohaiemen’s look at the failure of the 1970s revolutionary left continues in the third part of his The Young Man Was series (part two, Afsan’s Long Day, premiered at Doc Fortnight 2014). Through interviews, news clippings, and archival footage we meet Peter Custers, a Dutch journalist imprisoned in Bangladesh in 1975 for forming an underground Socialist group. Interviewed shortly before his death last year at age 66, Custers reflects positively on his youthful ambition, delving into both his dreams of Marxist revolution, and the physical and psychological abuse he suffered for it.
After screening discussion with producer Chloe Bass.
