Film Club January 2019: Pather Panchali


Recommended Posts

Not gonna lie, this is a bit of a slog for me. 

But I thought I would start by mentioning the very first thing that struck me about the film...that it is "presented" not by a studio but the Bengali Province. I have a chapter on Spirituality in Movies coming out next month for Routledge book on Spirituality in Professions, and I wrestle a little bit about whether or not movies can be reflections of values and beliefs or individual artists or whether demands of market make those subordinate to the requirements of whoever is paying for the art.
