This book brings together, for the first time in one volume, some of his most cerebral writings on film. With the economy and precision that marked his films, Ray writes on the art and craft of cinema, pens an ode to silent cinema, discusses the problems in adapting literary works to film, pays tributes to contemporaries like Godard and Uttam Kumar, and even gives us a peek into his experiences at film festivals, both as a jury member and as a contestant.

About the Author:

Satyajit Ray (1921 92) was one of the greatest film-makers of his time. His first film Pather Panchali (1955) won an award at the Cannes Film Festival and established his reputation as a major director. Over the next forty years, he made a number of films, many of which went on to be acknowledged as all-time classics. He is the only Indian to receive the Oscar for Lifetime Achievement. He was also awarded the Bharat Ratna. His other writings on cinema include Our Films Their Films and Speaking of Films, both bestsellers.
