Chicago Dialogues: Episode 1-The Ray Less Traveled

The inaugural episode of Chicago Dialogues sheds fresh light on some of the lesser known contours in the work and genius of the auteur, Satyajit Ray, including the film-makers who left a deep impact on him, the subtle political undertones in his films, the eternal present-ness of the Calcutta Trilogy, the selective use of leitmotifs, and the uniqueness of his music.  The series of Chicago Dialogues is being hosted by UChicago Center in Delhi in association with Prohor.in.
