Mrinal Sen: The Survivor

Shoma A. Chatterji (Author)
Synopsis In this profusely illustrated book on art paper, discover the mind and imagination behind classics such as Bhuwan Shome, Ek Din Pratidin and Akaaler Sandhane. Often narrated in the thoughtful words of the director himself. His films are sensitive and realistic portrayals of ordinary people. For director Mrinal Sen, films are a medium through which he has commented, criticized and empathized with people and their daily dilemmas. A pioneer of the parallel cinema in India, Mrinal Sen offered a refreshing change from the escapist fairy tales of mainstream films. His films are always a very personal and passionate response to the world round him. Crated with a clear eyed honesty, these sensitive portraits of people remain with the viewer long after the films are over.
