Synopsis:As a leader of the local community, Chairman Amin bans every kind of ‘image’ in his water locked village in rural Bangladesh. He even claims that imagination is sinful since it gives one the urge to infiltrate other prohibited territories. But change is a desperate wind that is difficult to resist even by shut windows. The tension grows and affects the lives of a group of eccentric and emotional village folks. At the end of the film, television, which Amin shunned so much comes his rescue. A new twist to the story makes him finally embrace modern ideas. Television has been the closing film for Busan Festival and has won Grand Jury Prize in Asia Pacific Screen Award 2013 in addition to five more international awards from Dubai, Jogja-Indonesia, Asiatica-Roma, and Kolkata.
