Satyajit Ray Returns to NY

Once again, we lucky New Yorkers, spoiled for choice, have a chance to enjoy a special treat from India.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center is collaborating with Columbia University to present Long Shadows: The Late Work of Satyajit Ray, starting today, April 19th, and running for one week, through to April 26th.

What’s unique about this collection of films is that they were all made during the final two decades of the maestro’s life.  The line-up includes: The Home and the World, Distant Thunder, The Elephant God, The Chess Players and Sikkim, among others.  It also includes Ray’s final film, The Stranger, which stars Utpal Dutt, and was filmed in 1991, the year before Ray died.
