The Cinema of SATYAJIT RAY
The Cinema of SATYAJIT RAY
Description
About the Book:

This comprehensive study of Satyajit Ray provides a commentary on the film-maker's work over an extra-ordinarily creative career spanning four decades. Placing Ray in his social and cultural context, it discusses each of his films from Pather Panchali (1955) to Aganluk (1991) in critical detail, and with an authority born of the author's long familiarity with Ray's work. The book devotes special attention to the literary sources of the films-as well as Ray's departures from literary originals-and the many influences, Eastern and Western, that shaped Ray's mind and art. Written in a highly readable style and illustrated with almost a hundred stills from the films, this book would be welcomed by all readers interested in the films of Satyajit Ray, and Indian cinema in general.

About the Author:

A noted film critic and film maker, Chidananda, Das Gupta was one of the founders of the Calcutta Film Society in 1947 and the Federation of Film Societies of India in 1959. He has been writing on cinema since the mid-forties. About two thousand articles and papers of his have been published in newspaper, magazines and learned journals in India and abroad. His book include Satyajit Ray(ed.) 1980, Talking about Films, 1981, The Painted Face: Studies in India's Popular Cinema, 1992, Boi Noy Chhabi (Bengali) and the present title, first published in 1980 and extensively revised and enlarged in this, the third edition. Chidananda Das Gupta has made two features-Bilet-Pherat (1973) and the award winning Amodini (1994) besides a host of short films among them being Portrait of a City (Calcutta), Dance of Shiva (on Ananda Coomaraswamy) and Birju Maharaj.
