Rows and Rows of Fences: Ritwik Ghatak on Cinema
Rows and Rows of Fences: Ritwik Ghatak on Cinema
Description
From the Jacket:

To Satyajit Ray, filmmaker Ritwik Ghatak was 'one of the few truly original talents in the cinema this country has produced.' Ray is full of praise for his 'intensity of feeling', and 'imaginative grasp of the technique of filmmaking', his 'powerful images in an epic style' and his command over the 'all-important aspect of editing'.

Since his untimely death, Ghatak has become a cult figure for followers of serious Indian cinema, the 'enfant terrible' of the avante-garde. In this volume, his writings on cinema include some important pieces previously available only in the original Bengali, as well as the collection of pieces in English previously published by Ritwik Memorial Trust as Cinema and I. Gathered here are musings, reviews, essays, and interviews. Together they offer a fascinating insight into the mind of a unique filmmaker, the significance of whose contribution to the heritage of cinema in India is beyond dispute.

Always liked Exotic India for lots of choice and a brilliantly service.

You have a great selection of books, and it's easy and quickly to purchase from you. Thanks.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
