Winner of the prestigious Rajat Kamal for Best Bodo Film at 63rd National Awards, Dau Huduni Methai is all set to release on December 30 across Assam.
Directed by Seven-time National Award winning director Manju Borah Dau Huduni Methai (Song Of The Horned Owl) is about the suffering of innocent Bodo villagers due to rampant militancy and violence.
Dau Huduni Methai (Song Of The Horned Owl) recounts the effects of insurgency and counterinsurgency on common folk through the perspective of Raimali, a young rape victim. As she lies in an abandoned house, she recalls how separatist violence mars her life, that of her lover and their families, contrasting its intrusive nature with indigenous folklore and the immutability of the Assamese landscape.
