Satyajit Ray

Satyajit Ray was an Indian film director, scriptwriter, documentary filmmaker, author, lyricist, magazine editor, illustrator, calligrapher, music composer, publisher, graphic designer and film critic. He is widely considered to have been one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. Ray directed 36 films, including feature films, documentaries and shorts. He authored several short stories and novels, primarily for young children and teenagers. Ray's first film, Pather Panchali (1955), won eleven international prizes.


Based on popular Indian stories of the great writer Rabindranath Tagore, these short films reveal definitive moments in the lives of three young girls.
