Rubaiyat Hossain is one of Bangladesh’s handful of female filmmakers, known for her debut feature film Meherjaan (2011) which faced political and cultural wrath in Bangladesh for its anti-war narrative, and its critic of masculine nationalism from a feminine point of view. Her second feature Under Construction premiered at New Directors Showcase at Seattle International Film festival and was theatrically released and well received in Bangladesh in 2016. Hossain uses a feminist lens to deconstruct the otherwise phallocentric institution of cinema. Currently she lives between Dhaka and New York making films and attending Tisch School of Arts at New York University in Cinema Studies.
