Film Screening: The Home and the World
Tuesday, October 30, 2012

The second installment of a semester-long film series sponsored by the Anthropology Department, The Home and the World comes from director Satyajit Ray."The Home and the World is based on a novel of the same name by the Hindu writer Rabindranath Tagore, a Nobel Prize winner. Satyajit Ray, the greatest Indian director, was a young man when he first wrote a screenplay based on the novel, but it has taken him thirty-five years to film it. It is a contemplative movie -- quiet, slow, a series of conversations punctuated by sudden bursts of activity. The suspense in the movie and the drama all form around the changing character of Bimala, the wife. We see her move from total seclusion to the ability to act recklessly and with courage. Together, [the characters] form a small group of ideas and emotions, growing and shifting, mirroring in their secluded chambers the violent changes in India. -Roger Ebert
