Bhoner: The Movie
In the summer of 2012, several film reels, badly damaged, were found in the attic of a recently deceased, mentally ill, conservative, Christian woman. On the reels were the remains of a motion picture, produced circa 1997. Even with much effort, only 50 minutes of the original six hours of footage were salvageable. This footage has been restored and the resulting film posthumously titled, Bhoner. Bhoner is an epic of conservative, Christian values and an allegory in the vein of C.S. Lewis and The Bible. It is a cautionary tale about the dangers of homosexuality and violence that plays ironically upon the elements of the slasher films and teen rom-coms of its day. It is a rare experience, a post-modern achievement, and a landmark in the annals of Film. Though much of the story has been destroyed by time and cat piss, the restoration retains much of its original plot. Kisses, an impressionable teenage girl, is sent to Summer School by her overbearing and histrionic mother. She finds herself homosexually attracted to one of her schoolmates, Poppy, and pursues her. At a social carousal, Kisses is struck by homosexual delusions and believes that the murderer of her father (actually a suicide; most likely gay) is stalking Poppy. After being humiliated by means of a social intrigue crafted by a schoolgirl named Dimple, Poppy loses her mind and convinces Kisses to kill everyone. But will she succeed?
