B.E.S. (Bangla East Side) is a documentary portrait of four Bangladeshi Muslim teenagers growing up in the Lower East Side of New York City. Initially started as an after school workshop at a local high school, the film follows Mahfuja, Jemi, Saleh and Maroofa as they travel between home and school, and as they live their lives as young immigrant teens in post 9-11 America.

Produced and Directed by Sarita Khurana and Fariba S. Alam in collaboration with Mahfuja, Jemi, Saleh and Maroofa.

Made possible by The Educational Alliance and The New York Times Foundation.

Co-sponsored by Shobak.org.

About 3rd I. 3rd I New York's monthly film and music salon designed by local filmmakers and experimental DJs showcases the works of independent filmmakers of South Asian descent and local djs, musicians and electronica artists. Providing alternative forums for South Asian filmmakers who often have few venues to showcase their work not only increases their visibility, but also provides a social forum for peers and audiences to participate in an ongoing discussion.
