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.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
