Date: c1959 System Requirements: NTSC, Region 1 DVD Region: Region 1 Language: Bengali Creator: Directed by Satyajit Ray Description: The Apu trilogy is the most celebrated work of Satyajit Ray, the greatest filmmaker ever to have emerged from Indian cinema. The three films-each a masterpiece in its own right-are enormously touching in their simplicity, emotional sweep and visual beauty and established Ray in the pantheon of the world's finest directors. 'Pather Panchali,' Ray's extraordinarily accomplished debut feature, begins the story of Apu, a young boy born into a poor but loving family in rural Bengal, and continues in 'Aparajito,' when adolescence and his growing independence bring both joy and sorrow. 'The World of Apu,' the final and most profoundly moving chapter in the trilogy, encompasses the extremes of joy and despair, ultimately reaching a conclusion that is among the most uplifting and life-affirming in cinema.
