Two Daughters (Ray, 1961): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 5.50pm

This 35mm presentation is part of the Satyajit Ray season at BFI Southbank (details here)

BFI introduction:
Ray adapted Tagore’s short stories to mark the latter’s centenary year. In The Postmaster, a young lad from the city is sent to a remote village where a young orphan girl is his domestic help. Samapti marks Aparna Sen’s delightful debut as a tomboy who breaks all rules as a young bride but has a change of heart as she reaches adolescence.

Here (and above) is an extract.
