mrinal sen #37

‘ i never thought of becoming a filmmaker ’ _ Mrinal Sen talks in details about his youth, his early interest in literature and cinema, which came much later in his life, after having read ‘cinema as a graphic art’, a highly technical book about Eisenstein: « That’s why i say that my journey into cinema was very accidental: only after having read all the books on cinema available at the Imperial Library, then i started watching films! ». Mrinal Sen also talks about the special relation between Ray and the great art director Bansi Chandragupta, and the early years of the Calcutta film Society (recorded in 1999 in Calcutta)

this short film is branch#37 of a big tree entitled ‘memories of ray’
