Shaheen Dill-Riaz, born 1969 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, has worked as a film critic in his hometown and was also one of the organizers of the Dhaka International Short Film Festival. In 1992, he was granted a scholarship by the Goethe-Institut. He then started to study art history in Berlin and graduated three years later. Subsequently, he started to study cinematography at Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen Konrad Wolf in Potsdam-Babelsberg. Dill-Riaz already caused a stir with his graduation film "Sand und Wasser" (2002). His documentary film about the tough living conditions in the Jamuna delta won several prizes.

In his following films, Dill-Riaz also dealt with the life situation in his native country: "Die glücklichsten Menschen der Welt" (2005) is a document of the everyday life of four young people in the capital Dhaka, while "Eisenfresser" depicts the inhuman conditions of the poverty-stricken seasonal workers who are wrecking ships in gigantic shipyards in the south of Bangladesh.
