Those who have gone through childhood and adolescence from the 1970s to the mid-1990s of the last century will find their lives of that age in the film “Summer Holiday”. Today’s urban children do not know the details of that youthful life, but its existence still survives at the least in the village. There’s an abundance of life, friendship, innate humor, empathy and thrill — which is Bangladesh’s own.
An attempt has been made here to present a segment of that life with as faithfully as possible. Instead of professional actors, amateurs who fit the characters in the story in real life have been chosen. The story is told in a very straightforward and linear way to avoid unnecessary complications. An attempt has been made to portray the rural environment as a wonderful world of audio. So along with the dialogues and the visuals, the ambient sounds are also an essential part of the story here. Instead of background music, various natural sounds and some folk rhymes known as game balls have been used according to the situation. In terms of color grading, a nostalgic palette of white-black-gray has been chosen. While the simple and uneventful story “Summer Holiday” is designed for children, the film is primarily aimed at audiences of all ages.
