BAD WEATHER tells the story of Banishanta Island. It is made
up of a community of sex workers. Living on a tiny sliver of
land 100 meters long and only ten meters wide in the Bay
of Bengal, south Bangladesh, this community survives at the
frontline of climate change. The rising river, soil erosion and
frequent cyclones are slowly destroying what is left of the
island. Razia, Khadija and Shefali, three of the last 65 women
left living there, are in a battle for their homes, the future of
their families, and even their quest for true love. As they strive to hold onto their livelihood, time is
running out. Soon the whole of Banishanta will be totally submerged under water, making it one of
the first real casualties of the shifting global environment.
