Synopsis:

Winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1957, the second part of Satyajit Ray’s peerless Apu trilogy finds our young protagonist standing at the threshold between the past and the future, torn between his commitment to his family and his desire to expand his horizons. Picking up where Pather Panchali leaves off, with Apu and his family beginning a new life in the holy city of Benares, the emotional weight of this extraordinary drama accumulates steadily, as we witness Apu’s emotional, spiritual and intellectual development, and the growing complexity of his relationship with his parents.

Part of the Magnum Photos & Masters of Cinema retrospective that also includes: The Gospel According to St. Matthew, Orphée, Stalker, Taste of Cherry, and Zabriskie Point. An exhibition to accompany the retrospective is in the Film Festival Bar at Leeds Town Hall from 1st to 16th November.
