This independent film is a biopic of Indian filmmaking legend Satyajit Ray and the making of his multi-award-winning debut film Pather Panchali.
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.
