Product Overview

""I can never forget the excitement in my mind after seeing Pather Panchali"", noted Akira Kurosawa. Satyajit Ray's three films about the boyhood, adolescence and manhood of Apu,Pather Panchali (1955), Aparajito (1956) and The World of Apu (1959) - collectively known asThe Apu Trilogy - are established classics of world cinema. The Trilogy was the chief reason for Satyajit Ray's receiving a Hollywood Oscar for lifetime achievement in 1992, just before his death.

This book by Ray's biographer and world authority Andrew Robinson is the first full study of the Trilogy. Robinson -- who came to know the director well during the last decade of his career -- covers the literary and cultural background to the films, their production, their music composed by Ravi Shankar, their aesthetic value, and their complex critical reception in the East and the West, from 1955 up to the present day. Extensively and beautifully illustrated and a pleasure to read,The Apu Trilogy will appeal to anyone captivated by the unique world created by Satyajit Ray.
