“Tareque Masud: Life & Dreams,” is a new book about Tareque’s life, launched on June 16, 2012. The book is published by Prothoma Prokashan, with support from the British Council and the Tareque Masud Memorial Trust. Based on speeches given by close family and friends at the memorial service held in Dhaka on August 26th, 2011, the book traces the life of the late filmmaker from his earliest years, through his evolution as an artist and film activist, until his last years in the prime of his career.
Edited by Catherine Masud, the 120-page album-style book is bilingual in Bengali and English, and contains many photos spanning Tareque Masud’s life and works. It is available from all major book outlets in Bangladesh, and we hope to also make it available to others outside Bangladesh as well.
