Muktir Gaan part 3
Mukthir Gaan (Song of Freedom) is the first-ever full-length feature film on Bangladesh's 1971 liberation war. In 1971, the Bengali revolt against Pakistani domination and the subsequent army crackdown captured world headlines on an unprecedented scale. The papers enthusiastically dubbed it "The Bengali Holocaust". For a war-weary generation in the West, already on edge from Vietnam war protests, the "genocide" in the Subcontinent inflamed passions and triggered agitation against US arms policy, blockades against Navy ships, and guerrilla theatre in front of the White House and Hyde Park.
