Episode 122. Subtle Satyajit

As a contrast to the majority of Indian film covered on the podcast so far, today Alex and Jonathan look at the works of Satyajit Ray in Pather Panchali (1955), Charulata (1964), and Nayak: The Hero (1966). We discuss what makes Ray stand out from other Indian films we’ve covered, how Ray is able to capture the specific and universal aspects of Indian life, and the importance of studying a broad range of stories.
