Bangladesh picks ‘Circle’ for Oscar

Country selects pic for foreign-language film race

The Bangladesh Federation of Film Societies has selected Golam Rabbani Biplob’s “Beyond the Circle” (Britter bairey) to rep the country in the Academy’s foreign-language film race. Biplob’s helming debut “On the Wings of Dreams” was the country’s 2007 choice.

Released in September, pic centers on a naïve rural flute player who gets taken for a ride.

The Impress Telefilm production, starring Jayanto Chattopadhyay, unspooled in Toronto’s Contemporary World Cinema section last month.
