Featured Film:

The Apu Trilogy at the SIFF Uptown

Following a sold out run at this year’s Seattle International Film Festival, the very fine digital restoration of Satyajit Ray’s Apu Trilogy plays this week at the SIFF Uptown. Released between 1955 and 1959 and comprising the great Bengali director’s first, second and fifth feature films (Pather Panchali, Aparajito and The World of Apu, respectively), adapting two novels by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay. Warm and naturalistic in style, evincing the influence of both Jean Renoir and the Italian Neo-Realists, Ray’s films were among the first (and remain some of the few) Indian films to crossover into the European/North American canon.
