“To have not seen the films of Ray is to have lived in the world without ever having seen the moon and the sun.” – Akira Kurosawa
During the second half of April, the Film Society of Lincoln Center (New York) will present the films of Satyajit Ray in First Light: Satyajit Ray from the Apu Trilogy to the Calcutta Trilogy (tickets). The series focuses on the first half of Ray’s career, including The Apu Trilogy, and will conclude with a conference at Columbia University.
Ray’s work inspired Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited. Tragically, The Apu Trilogy is out of print in the United States.
