Apu Trilogy by Satyajit Ray

Book Description

With the "Apu Trilogy" - "Pather Panchali", "Aparajito" and "Apur Sansar" - in the fifties, Satyajit Ray caught the attention of film enthusiasts all over the world. The trilogy is the story of growing up in India. It traces Apu's growth from childhood - cruelly poor but brightened by a passion for creativity and learning - to battered maturity. This 50th Anniversary volume, containing a foreword and working sketches by Ray presents the first authorized publication of these scripts in their entirety along with extensive interviews with Ray himself. Fresh material special to this edition includes an expansive interview with Ray by Shyam Benegal, himself a leading filmmaker with several award-winning films to his credit. In the interaction between the two directors, Ray talks about early influences, the experience of making the "Apu Trilogy", the importance of music and the portrayal of women in his film as well as other aspects of his craft. This edition also includes a complete filmography.

Author Biography - Satyajit Ray

Satyajit Ray (1921-1992), India's best-known filmmaker, is widely credited with ushering in a new era in narrative cinema. His award-winning films combine the cinematic with the literary and the emotional with the intellectual. A true auteur, Ray wrote his own stories and screenplays, designed his sets and costumes, composed music and even operated the camera. His first film, Pather Panchali (The Song of the Road) won him world acclaim. In 1978, the Berlin Film Festival ranked him as one of the three all-time best directors. In 1992 he received an honorary Academy Award for a lifetime achievement. Over his career Ray made 30 features and several shorts and documentaries.
