BANGLA SURF GIRLS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2ytXt8uvuM

Bangla Surf Girls is an immersive documentary that takes us into the heart of Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh, where young girls join a local surf club and dare to dream of freedom and escape from a life of drudgery and abuse.

The documentary captures the raw emotions, the family dynamics, and the complex pressures of poverty. Balancing the freedom of the waves with the restrictive realities of their circumstances, we experience the thrill and struggle of coming-of-age in a developing country.
