Sen made his first feature film in 1953

Moviyana Film Society and Bangladesh Film School will co-host a political reading workshop on veteran film-maker Mrinal Sen’s films at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy’s National Theatre on July 20-21.

Film writer and director Prof Dr Nadir Junayed and film-maker and writer Belayet Hossain Mamun will teach at the two-day workshop. 

Noted West Bengal film-maker Mrinal Sen was born on May 14, 1923 in the town of Faridpur, Bangladesh. Along with his contemporaries Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak, he is often considered to be one of the greatest ambassadors of Bangla parallel cinema on the global stage. His cinema is known for its artistic depiction of social reality. Mrinal Sen is an ardent follower of Marxist philosophy. 

Sen made his first feature film in 1953. His second film “Neel Akasher Nichey (Under the Blue Sky),” earned him local recognition, while his third film, “Baishey Shravan (Wedding Day)” was his first film that gave him international exposure.

After making five more films, he made a film titled “Bhuvan Shome (Mr. Shome)” with a very minimal budget provided by the government of India which launched him as a major film-maker, both nationally and internationally. “Bhuvan Shome” also initiated the “New Cinema Movement” in India. At the age of 80, he made his latest film, “Aamar Bhuban,” in 2003.

During his career, Mrinal Sen’s film have received awards from almost all major film festivals, including Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Moscow, Karlovy Vary, Montreal, Chicago, and Cairo. Retrospectives of his films have been shown in almost all major cities of the world.
