Our friends at City Art House present The Apu Trilogy
Sent to mailinglist subscribers on February 17, 2016
Fresno Filmworks serves as a cultural arts partner of the ongoing City Art House film series at Fresno City College, a presentation of the FCC film studies program.
Two decades after its original negatives were burned in a fire, master director Satyajit Ray’s breathtaking milestone of world cinema rises from the ashes in a meticulously reconstructed new 4K restoration. The Apu Trilogy brought India into the golden age of international art-house film, following one indelible character, a free-spirited child in rural Bengal who matures into an adolescent urban student and finally a sensitive man of the world. These delicate masterworks—Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road), Aparajito (The Unvanquished), and Apur Sansar (The World of Apu)—were shot over the course of five years, and each stands on its own as a tender, visually radiant journey. They are among the most achingly beautiful, richly humane movies ever made.
