Satyajit Rayâ€™s Apu Trilogy: Restoration and re-release of Pather Panchali.
Rohit Khare stashed this in potpourri
coming to SF Opera Plaza theater June 12. â€” RK
Pather Panchali, along with its two sequels,Â AparajitoÂ (1956) andThe World of ApuÂ (1959)â€”the three together are known as â€śthe Apu Trilogy,â€ť after their main characterâ€”has just been re-released by Janus Films in a pristineÂ 4KÂ restoration, to be made available in aÂ Criterion Blu-ray setÂ later this year. (The original negatives of all three films were burned in a film-lab fire in London in 1993, making theÂ restoration processÂ especially difficult.) If this trilogy comes anywhere near your townâ€”it opened earlier this month for a run at New Yorkâ€™s Film Forum, withÂ plans to spreadÂ to more U.S. cities through the summerâ€”I canâ€™t exhort you any more strongly to see it than Kurosawa already has. Do you really want to exist in the world without ever seeing the sun or the moon?
Not sure I understand the comparison to the sun and moon.
4k transfer is cool.
