Mystique Of Pather Panchali. The Legend of Indian Cinema

Released in 1955, the film Pather Panchali, made by filmmaker Satyajit Ray, marked a breaking point in Indian filmography. With a minimalist approach full of lyricism and social sensitivity, with this film Ray opened space for a new way of portraying this complex and mythical subcontinent.

In the absence of biographical documentaries about his life with an international perspective, this independent documentary is a valuable document to learn about the life of the prolific Satyajit Ray, an artist admired by cinema gems such as Akira Kurosawa, Jean Renoir, George Lucas and Martin Scorcese.
