Two of Satyajit Ray’s most famous films will be screened at the Film Festival:
Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road): The first of the “Apu Triology”, this movie, based on Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay’s novel of the same name, depicts the childhood of a young boy, Apu, born to a poor Brahmin family in a village in Bengal.
Jalsaghar (The Music Room): The movie is about the last days of the zamindari families in Bengal. Biswambhar Roy, an aging Bengali aristocratic zamindar obsessed with his “heritage,” sacrifices his family and wealth in the pursuit of that “respect” which must be maintained at any cost.
