Happy Rain trailer

Happy Rain is an inspiring documentary on how people, affected by natural calamity like flash flood, cope with the disaster and make sustainable wealth from it. The documentary focuses on the development story of fish farming in the low flooded lands mostly in post-monsoon rain and what happens to the rice paddy fields of Daudkandi in various seasons. Every year, rivers and streams descending from China, Nepal, Bhutan and India join together and overflow, flooding and nourishing the Bangladeshi soil throughout the long monsoon months, collectively opening up loads of opportunities for the local people in the region. The development of fish farming is a brain-child of SM Morshed, the director of SHISUK, who aimed to introduce multi-produce and accordingly he managed local communities to invest and to create a fishing company together. The film was directed and produced by Dr Isabelle Antunes. Born in France and brought up in Australia, Dr Isabelle worked in Indonesia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Indonesia, New Caledonia and Pakistan in the Asia-Pacific region; as well as Botswana, Ivory Coast, Morocco and Senegal in Africa.
