Product Description

Product Description

THE NAME OF A RIVER
A film by Anup Singh

Anup Singh's The Name of a River is an ambitious evocative epic/essay/biopic that explores the life and work of the great Indian filmmaker, Ritwik Ghatak.

The film covers a huge area of visual, aural and intellectual ground within its 90 minutes, presenting its audience with a dreamlike odyssey through a history, a life and a work that we, the viewers, encounter in the shape of landscapes and music, lovers, gods, myths and memories, literature and cinema.

Singh's greatest achievement is that he has created a profound celebration and exploration of life itself through his staged encounter with the memory of Ghatak.

Extras include a director's commentary and biographies of Anup Singh and Ritwik Ghatak.

Review

'A leisurely, seductive and languorously sensual movie that mirrors the multifaced aspects of its subject.' --Paul Willemen

'A beautiful debut feature...Images and sounds that are seared into the heart... it distills enormous gut-wrenching issues like the Partition of India and exile into exquisite, yet potent images of delicacy, painterliness and innocence - which are immediately accessible to all.' --The Times of India
