35mm and Digital
Part of the Satyajit Ray Season
Screening from a 35mm print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive, Kanchenjungha is Satyajit Ray's story of a daughter's reluctance to bend to the wishes of her father regarding her proposed arranged marriage - all while on the family holiday in the Himalayan hill station of Darjeeling.
Following this is Sikkim - Ray's documentary which was commissioned originally by the former Chogyal (King) of Sikkim - a kingdom nestled between Nepal Bhutan and Tibet. Banned for some 30 years, it is a window onto the life of those in this rarely-seen Himalayan community.
