Retrospective to run April 15 - 30
The Film Society of Lincoln Center will be hosting “First Light: Satyajit Ray From the Apu Trilogy to the Calcutta Trilogy,” a retrospective of the Indian helmer’s work running April 15-30. Six of the movies will appear in new prints from the Academy Film Archive: “The Expedition,” “The Adventures of Goopy and Bagha,” “The Music Room,” “The Coward and the Holy Man,” “Two” and “The Hero.”
Ray made a movie every year from 1956 to 1981 and received an honorary Oscar in 1992, shortly before his death that year. In conjunction with the series, Columbia U. will hold an April 25 conference on the helmer featuring professors of film and literature from universities in the U.S. and India, as well as talks by filmmakers Mira Nair and Sandip Ray, Satyajit Ray’s son.
