With the season of Satyajit ray films showing at the BFI Southbank, we would like to encourage those who can’t visit, or get tickets, to view the great Apu Trilogy or ‘Apu Sanar’, which is still available from Criterion on DVD and Blu Ray.
Mamoun participated in the release with a piece called ‘The Apu Trilogy – A Closer Look’, Produced and Edited by Abbey Lustgarten from Criterion.
We have included a short sequence from this extensive piece.
Ray was sent a copy of Mamoun’s original Movie Masterclass in 1990 which prompted him to write to Mamoun. The letter is reproduced below.
