35mm and Digital
Rabindranath Tagore weaves together documentary and archive footage to present a richly detailed portrait of Satyajit Ray's titular compatriot. A great writer, poet, composer and painter, Tagore was instrumental in bringing the Bengali language into cultural expression through various artforms. Charulata is arguably Ray's definitive masterpiece. Based on Tagore's story Nashtanirh (The Broken Nest), it's a story of desire and self-realisation - set against the backdrop of the Bengali Renaissance.
