MUSIC VIDEO: “Dudok” (in Bengali)

Written and performed by Tajul Imam, this song decries the corruption in Bangladesh’s political circles. “Dudok” is the Anti-Corruption Bureau, a watchdog police force monitoring the powerful elite in Bangladesh. Mr. Imam is joined by actor Golam Sarwar Harun and dancer Shahid Uddin. The green screen footage was shot on SD, which was tricky to key out, and turnaround time was only four days. Admittedly crude in its techniques, the simplicity of the design kept viewers focused on the message. Broadcasted by several major channels in Bangladesh following the widespread Dudok arrests of high-level officials in 2007, the video became a national sensation.
