In conjunction with SAM's exhibition Peacock in the Desert, we present India’s most renowned cinematic achievement, The Apu Trilogy (1955–60). Writer-director Satyajit Ray, with his meditative eye and humane socio-political insight, traces the boy Apu’s spiritual path from his beginning village life in nature to his urban university years, marriage and fatherhood, all accompanied by Ravi Shankar’s mesmerizing music. The films have been digitally restored, and are in Bengali with English subtitles.
