Indian director Ritwik Ghatak's mournful drama depicts the everyday lives of people living in an East Bengali fishing community. Focusing first on the grim travails of a mother and son, the story ripples outward to follow the raids of kidnappers, the threats posed to the local culture as the river dries up, and the invasion of profit-seekers from the nearby city. The nonprofessional cast includes Fakrul Hasan Bairaqi, Narain Chakraborty. 151 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Bengali; Subtitles: English. In Bengali with English subtitles.
