A tribute to Mrinal Sen
On the occasion of revered film auteur Mrinal Sen’s 94th birthday, Chalachitram Film Society, Bangladesh National Museum and India-Bangladesh Foundation jointly organised a five day long film screening session, which began on May 13 at the main auditorium of Bangladesh National Museum. Prime minister’s foreign advisor, Gowher Rizvi inaugurated the program, while two eminent film makers, Tanvir Mokammel and Morshedul Islam spoke at the event. Director general of Bangladesh National Museum, Faizul Latif Chowdhury was also present at the event. Mrinal Sen’s Ek din Pratidin was screened after the commencement ceremony. The screening will continue till May 17 at the main auditorium of the museum. The event is open for all. Interview and Chorus is on the schedule of today’s screening, while Kharij, Ek din Achanak and Jayanta Bhattacharjee’s documentary Always Being Born are scheduled for May 16. Antareen, Amar Bhuban and Rajdeep Pal’s documentray Mrinal Sen: An Era in Cinema will be projected on the last day of the event. Born on May 14, 1923, Mrinal Sen is an Indian film maker based in Kolkata, who is often considered to be one of the greatest ambassadors of Indian parallel cinema on the global stage, along with his contemporaries Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak. His work is highly lauded for its artistic depiction of social reality. Although the three directors shared a healthy rivalry, they were ardent admirers of each other’s works, and in so doing, they charted the independent trajectory of parallel cinema, as a counterpoint to the mainstream fare of Hindi cinema in India.
