In this unusual book, Satyajit Ray, the internationally renowned filmmaker, is seen on the sets and at home through the lens of contemporary film director Shyam Benegal. In conversation with a fellow artist for whom he has considerable respect, Ray opens up in a manner rarely seen, reminiscing about his childhood and growing years, discussing his oeuvre, responding to questions on his craft and exploring memories immortalized in his films. The result is a discovery of the private person as much as a look at his work - a close-up of a major presence in world cinema.
Conceived around Shyam Benegal's two-hour-long film on Satyajit Ray, this volume brings together the script of the film, selections from Benegal's extensive interviews with Ray, and a rare selection of visual material documenting Ray as designer, illustrator, film director and scriptwriter.
