This story of love and loneliness in 19th century India is one of master filmmaker Satyajit Ray's most beloved films.

India | 117 min | NR | DCP | 1964 | Dir. Satyajit Ray

Charu lives a lonely and idle life in 1870s India. Although her husband Bhupati devotes more time to his newspaper than to their marriage, he sees her loneliness and asks his brother-in-law, Umapada to keep her company. At the same time Bhupati's own brother, Amal, a would-be writer comes home finishing his college education. However, after several months, Charu and Amal's feelings for each other move beyond literary friendship. One of Satyajit Ray’s (The Apu Trilogy) most famous films, this screening is a necessity for anyone with a taste for international cinema. “For me, Ray was one of the ideal role models for the kind of director I would like to be.” –Wes Anderson “Satyajit Ray was one of the cinema’s greatest artists” – Martin Scorsese
