Mrinal Sen: The Survivor (Charitavali Series)
Mrinal Sen: The Survivor (Charitavali Series)
Description
From the Jacket:

His films are sensitive and realistic portrayals of ordinary people. For director Mrinal Sen, films are a medium through which he has commented, criticized and empathized with people and their daily dilenumas.

A pioneer of the parallel cinema in India, Mrinal Sen offered a refreshing change from the escapist fairy tales of mainstream films. His films are always a very personal and passionate response to the world around him. Created with a clear eyed honesty, these sensitive portraits of people remain with the viewer long after the films are over.

In this book discover the mind and imagination behind classics such as Bhuvan Shome, Ek Din Pvatidin and Akaaler Sandhane. Often narrated in the thoughtful words of the director himself.
