In Shishuder Shomoy, which NTV Bangla telecasted to observe the World Child Rights Week, Khokon focuses on several issues such as child labour and child abuse. To quote Khokon, "We are going through a transition; the younger generation is growing up in a mixed cultural environment. Through the medium of TV, I intend to give them a sense of our rich cultural heritage."
As a matter of fact over the last few years Alfred has made programmes on our traditional music. Alfred has made two documentaries - Shurer Parampara and Bhab-baithaki, which was telecasted during Eid on NTV Bangla.
Shurer Parampara highlighted the legacy of the Khan family of Brahmanbaria. The programme covers Safdar Ali Khan and his two sons -- Ustad Alauddin Khan, Ustad Ayat Ali Khan -- and the next generation who dedicated themselves to classical music and instruments. According to Khokon, "I've tried to feature some historic moments as well as the unfamiliar facts in the programme".
In Bhab-baithaki two singers presented issues related to men and women. Khokon says, "It's neither a pala nor a kabir larai, as the singers will not improvise anything in the show. They will perform some songs of Lalon, Hason Raja and other traditional songs, dealing with relationships."
One of his documentary films is Aakashbari, based on urban children who miss the openness of nature. Khokon said, "It's a satire on the urban life where the children don't get to see the wide open spaces or come in contact with dirt and sand."
Why documentary films? Khokon's response: "My aim is to make feature films. And making documentaries help gain expertise in filmmaking, which I'll need when making feature films."
