Film screening: Devi
Friday, November 9, 2012

The third installment of a semester-long film series sponsored by the Anthropology Department, Devi comes from director Satyajit Ray.The film is set in 1860 at Chandipur, in rural Bengal, India. Devi focuses on a young woman, who is deemed a goddess when her father-in-law, a rich feudal landlord, envisions her as the Goddess Kali.Ray's feeling for the intoxicating beauty within the disintegrating way of life of the 19th century landowning class makes this one of the rare, honest films about decadence.- Pauline Kael
