Considered one of the masters of 20th Century Cinema, and celebrated as India’s ‘extraordinary filmmaker,’ the legendary Satyajit Ray has been credited with opening the world’s eyes to life in India, with his humanist tales involving coming of age, marital life, class and his country’s own troubled history. Akira Kurosawa, one of cinema’s most honored directors said of Ray: ‘To have not seen the films of Ray is to have lived in the world without ever having seen the moon and the sun.’ This session we will view the Award winning cinematic achievements that brought him to the world’s attention: ‘The World of Apu.’ Following the trilogy, we will also see Ray’s final film, ‘The Stranger.’ This four week event is also available virtually.
