|The Apu Trilogy: Pather Panchali; Aparajito; Apur Sansar – Trailer
Two decades after its original negatives were burned in a fire, Satyajit Rayâs breathtaking milestone of world cinema rises from the ashes in a meticulously reconstructed new 4K restoration. The Apu Trilogy brought India into the golden age of international art-house film, following one indelible character, a free-spirited child in rural Bengal who matures into an adolescent urban student and finally a sensitive man of the world. These delicate masterworksâPather Panchali (Song of the Little Road), Aparajito (The Unvanquished),and Apur Sansar (The World of Apu)âbased on two books by Bibhutibhusan Banerjeeâwere shot over the course of five years, and each stands on its own as a tender, visually radiant journey. They are among the most achingly beautiful, richly humane movies ever madeâessential works for any film lover.
