Time and Dreams

John W. Hood (Author)
Synopsis Art cinema in Bengal has a considerable reputation with masters like Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak and Mrinal Sen establishing a reputation for originality and artistic integrity. Poet and filmmaker Buddhadeb Dasgupta upholds this tradition with his sensitive films which have won critical kudos and awards at national and international film festivals. With his very first feature film, Duratwa, in 1978, Buddhadeb Dasgupta was considered a filmmaker to watch; Satyajit Ray found the film ‘poetic’. Two decades and 10 feature films later, he has lived up to his earlier promise, continuing to win recognition at film festivals and establishing his reputation as a sensitive and serious filmmaker. By way of an introduction to his cinema, this volume takes a close look at his feature films, tracing significant themes and motifs through the oeuvre. A complete filmography and list of published works are also included.
