'Pather Panchai', the first film of Satyajit Ray...dominated Cannes this year, surpassing new work by artists of the calibre of Donskoi, De Sica, and Kurosawa... a beautiful picture, completely fresh and personal'. - Lindsay Anderson, 1956
With the Apu Trilogy (Pather Panchali, Aparajito, Apur Sansar) in the fifties, Satyajit Ray caught the attention of cinema connoisseurs all over the world. The trilogy, which is the story of Apu, is also the story of growing up in India. It traces Apu's growth from a childhood harsh with poverty but brightened by a passion for creativity and learning into a battered maturity.
This volume, containing a foreword and working sketches by Ray, who also checked and edited the text which is based on a shot-by-shot viewing of the films, brings you the first authorized publication of these scripts in their entirety.
