    SUDDENLY, ONE DAY

    Mrinal Sen India, 1989

    Ingeniously scripted and visually inventive, Mrinal Sen’s powerful drama offers a touching look at the inmost dynamics of a family microcosm. As the daughter of the missing patriarch, Shabana Azmi is sublime, melancholically finding her way through emotional torrents of the past and the present.

    IN SEARCH OF FAMINE

    Mrinal Sen India, 1980

    For arguably one of his best films, Mrinal Sen masterfully turns the film-within-a-film trope on its head to comment on the film industry’s apathy and blind privilege. Featuring an outstanding performance by Smita Patil, this nuanced critique of exploitative art practices remains extremely relevant.

    Mrinal Sen India, 1969

    Following a detached loner’s journey of self-discovery, Mrinal Sen’s landmark film is one of the key works of India’s Parallel cinema movement. The minimalistic storytelling style and outstanding camerawork sublimely juxtapose the barren landscapes with the central character’s personality traits.
