To celebrate the 42nd anniversary of Bangladesh Independence we will be screening some seminal movies by legendary director Satyajit Ray.

Tuesday 26th March


6pm: The Goddess (Devi)

"A fine example of Ray's work and well worth seeing" The Guardian
"Wonderful, extraordinary, powerful story" The Telegraph

Doyamoyee is left alone with her husband's ageing father-in-law, a devoted follower of the goddess Kali. One evening, the aging widower she cares for has a dream that she is an avatar of Kali, and must be worshipped. Word spreads, and others come to believe that she is an incarnation of the deity. Hearing this alarming news, her husband, Umprasad, returns only to find Doyamoyee herself beginning to believe that she is an avatar; a belief which soon turns to tragedy. 1960, 93mins


8:30pm: Company Limited (Seemabaddha)

"Sharply observed beautifully acted" The Observer

Successful executive, Shyamalendu, has a visit from his sister-in-law (Tutul) who is introduced to the life they lead - in restaurants, beauty parlours, clubs and race courses. When crisis strikes in his employment, help is given by a shady labour officer and the ensuing events leave Tutul with a bitter taste of Shyamalendu's vacuousness world. 1974, 110mins

Wednesday 27th March


6pm: The Goddess (Devi)


8:30pm: Two Daughters (Dui Kanya)

"Outstanding... Very funny" The Observer

The first of these two stories follows Nanda, a young man who leaves Calcutta to work as a postmaster in an isolated malaria-infested village. He meets a young orphan girl who becomes his only solace when he begins teaching her to read and write. The second story follows Amula who returns to his village after studying and finds his mother is very anxious for him to marry. Forced to choose quickly he picks a lively tomboy who is not ready to give up her freedom. 109mins
