The Apu Trilogy: PATHER PANCHALI (SONG OF THE LITTLE ROAD), 1955, Janus Films, 125 min. Director Satyajit Ray burst onto the international film scene with this first film, based upon Bibhutibhushan Bannerjee’s novel of the same name. As part one of what would become “the Apu Trilogy,” PATHER PANCHALI depicts a poor Brahmin family struggling to survive in their small Bengali village. The birth of a new child, Apu, marks the beginning of new adventures - and struggles - for the family. This dense mosaic of village life introduces Apu's dreamy father, fretful mother and tempestuous older sister, with the child Apu a wide-eyed observer. Beautifully balancing the prosaic and poetic, it depicts harsh poverty and childhood raptures with unsentimental compassion. Scenes of Apu and his sister exploring their surroundings are among the most beautiful and memorable moments ever captured on film. Voted one of the 10 greatest films of all time in the 1992 Sight & Sound poll. With music by the legendary Ravi Shankar. “One of the most stunning first films in movie history.” - Jack Kroll, Newsweek. In Bengali with English subtitles.
APARAJITO (THE UNVANQUISHED), 1956, Janus Films, 108 min. Dir. Satyajit Ray. Part two in the “Apu Trilogy,” this film affirmed Ray’s stance as a master of cinema. APARAJITO follows Apu from ages 10 to 17. Apu and his family are now living in a new village along the banks of the holy Ganges River. Faced with the loss of his father and the demands of fast-approaching adulthood, Apu goes on to study in Calcutta, leaving his mother behind. APARAJITO centers around Apu’s maturation and his changing relationship with his widowed mother. One of the cinema's most profound treatments of parent-child relationships. With more superb music by Ravi Shankar. In Bengali with English subtitles.
APUR SANSAR (THE WORLD OF APU), 1958, Janus Films, 103 min. Dir. Satyajit Ray. As the final installment of the “Apu Trilogy,” APUR SANSAR depicts Apu’s challenges with adult life in the city. Living again in poverty, Apu is forced to sell his books and begins writing an autobiographical novel. Upon making an unexpected visit to a small village, Apu finds himself as the groom in an arranged marriage. Life with his new bride gives way to love - and a child - and ultimately proves to be both joyous and tragic. Nominated for the Golden Globes’ Samuel Goldwyn International Award in 1961. In Bengali with English subtitles. THE APU TRILOGY was restored by the Satyajit Ray Preservation Project through a collaboration of the Academy Film Archive, the Merchant and Ivory Foundation and the Film Foundation. Restoration funding provided by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Prints courtesy of the Academy Film Archive. Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
