Last week, we bid adieu to our dearest Apu. Soumitra Chatterjee was an actor par excellence, a poet, a thespian and the most popularly known Satyajit Ray protege. He was widely acclaimed, widely loved and will always continue to remain so.

Last week also marked the 99th birth anniversary of film critic and film historian Chidananda Dasgupta, who was also one of the founders of the Calcutta Film Society, along with Ray, in 1947. Aruna Vasudev, former President of FIPRESCI India, delivers a lecture to commemorate the occasion.

This week's Spanish film, Idrissa (2019) is a socio-drama which challenges legal, juridical and law enforcement decisions. Do attend an engaging discussion between bi-lingual writer, translator and theatre critic, Shanta Gokhale and cultural producer and theatre person, Sameera Iyengar on the Ways of Seeing and Being in Feminist Scholarly Practices.

Our weekly updates of the Met Opera and the European Union Film Festival continue.
