The bread-winning daughter in a middle-class family fails to return from work one evening.

Category: Feature Film

Genre: Drama, Fantasy


Description

Carrying an axe on his shoulder and preserving the strange memory of his encounter with a tiger, a rural migrant comes to the city and shares a temporary shelter with an old beggar in an abandoned graveyard. There are others, a vast lot of rural migrants, who, hoping against all hopes, spread out in the sprawling city and live sub-human existence.

Appears a girl from nowhere. She is a queer drifter, deserted by her husband, duped by another man and now in search of a "home". She comes to the graveyard and enjoys a new life with the man with the axe. Later, the girl disappears into darkness, perhaps, for a better home.

The man is in frightful loneliness. And, there, in a strange fantasy, he wages a fierce battle with darkness. In darkness he meets his adversaries.

Interview (1971)

Country: India

Language: Bengali

Year: 1971

Color/BW: BW

Category: Feature Film

Genre: Drama


Description

A dawn to dusk account of a young man in search of a job. This is his day of an interview in a swell Indo-British firm where, logically, he has to look his best. His only suit, a complete one, is in the laundry, and as luck would have it, all city laundries are on strike from that morning. The film is an intense search for a new suit to be borrowed from any of his friends, the loss of a good one procured that way, again a frantic search, and finally the interview - all erratic blending of fictional narrative, news reel coverage and near-cinema-verite type documentation. The film ends with a strange interview between the dejected young man and an unseen spectator who has watched him since the film started. And at last the film arrives at a moment of judgment - that of the value-world.
