They Shot Pictures Episode #02: Satyajit Ray
In this sophomore episode of They Shot Pictures, I am joined by Reel Time veteran Deepayan Sengupta. The two of us take a trip down memory lane and revisit films by a director who played a key role in our cinematic education.
We discuss three films by renowned Bengali director, Satyajit Ray. We start with a musical adventure comedy from 1968, Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne. We move on to the first film from his loose trilogy on the city of Calcutta, called The Adversary and wrap up the episode with a discussion of the resplendent color film set in the aftermath of the partition of Bengal, Ghare Baire.
