    THE STRANGER

    Satyajit Ray India, 1991

    Ostensibly a psychological mystery, Satyajit Ray’s last film is a deeply philosophical rumination on the evolution of civilization and human nature. Based on his own short story Athiti, The Stranger ponders on a world where the value of material wealth far exceeds that of humanity, trust, and love.

    THE HOME AND THE WORLD

    Satyajit Ray India, 1984

    Reminiscent of Charulata, the heady love triangle at the heart of this Rabindranath Tagore adaptation blends privates passions with political fervor. Gorgeously lit and meticulously framed, Ray’s masterwork deftly juxtaposes the early 20th-century nationalist movement with the emancipation of women.

    THE CHESS PLAYERS

    Satyajit Ray India, 1977

    Made during an era of press censorship in India, The Chess Players is a self-described “contemplative though unsparing” drama that examined the country’s future through its past. An exquisite satire from one of world cinema’s most beloved masters: Satyajit Ray.

    AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

    Satyajit Ray India, 1989

    An adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s play An Enemy of the People, Ganashatru is a scathing commentary on the social system and religious orthodoxies. Highlights the ever-persistent conflict between rationality and religion, which is fueled by the greed of the powerful and naivete of blind faith.
