Satyajit Ray Retrospective at Cinematheque de Catalunya, Barcelona
From March 12-28, nine films of Satyajit Ray will be screened at the Cinematheque de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain. The retrospective programme includes the screening of Apu Trilogy (Pather Panchali, Aparajito, Apur Sansar), Charulata, Shatranj Ke Khilari, Jalsaghar, Sadgati, Bala, Mahanagar and Satyajit Ray, a biopic on Ray by Shyam Benegal.
Organized by the Filmoteca de Catalunya, a film archive in Spain, in collaboration with ImagineIndia and Directorate of Film Festivals of India, the sixteen day programme celebrates Ray’s depiction of “the modern ideals of a society, that was also a colonized country. A filmmaker (Ray) who should be visited from time to time so as to not lose sight of what is essential,” states the Filmoteca de Catalunya website.
