PATHER PANCHALI

July 1 @ 5:00 pm7:05 pm
Plaza de Oro Theatre,
371 Hitchcock Way, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 United States

The release in 1955 of Satyajit Ray’s debut, Pather Panchali, introduced to the world an eloquent and important new cinematic voice. A depiction of rural Bengali life in a style inspired by Italian neorealism, this naturalistic but poetic evocation of a number of years in the life of a family introduces us to both little Apu and, just as essentially, the women who will help shape him: his independent older sister, Durga; his harried mother, Sarbajaya, who, with her husband often away, must hold the family together; and his kindly and mischievous elderly “auntie,“ Indir—vivi…

APARAJITO

July 8 @ 5:00 pm6:50 pm
Plaza de Oro Theatre,
371 Hitchcock Way, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 United States

Aparajito picks up where the first film leaves off, with Apu and his family having moved away from the country to live in the bustling holy city of Varanasi (then known as Benares).

APUR SANSAR

July 22 @ 5:00 pm6:45 pm
Plaza de Oro Theatre,
371 Hitchcock Way, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 United States

By the time Apur Sansar was released, Satyajit Ray had directed not only the first two Apu films but also the masterpiece The Music Room, and was well on his way to becoming a legend.
