Runa Islam
Born in 1970 in Bangladesh
Lives and works in London, UK             CV
--------------------------------------------
Runa Islam primarily works with film and video, which she shows in large installations and constructed environments. She primarily uses feature films as a starting points and is interested in the narrative technique of the motion picture and in the way filmic devises create illusion. She has chosen to work with film because the medium itself contains references and influences of great complexity.

In her ongoing work, Runa Islam has a more explicit social perspective. She has returned to her home city, Dhaka in Bangladesh, and observes the vulnerability of the underclass in her visually strong film work.
