A Village in Bengal
For twelve years, Chirodeep Chaudhuri has returned each fall to his native village in Bengal to attend the ceremonies celebrating the worship of the Hindi goddess Durga. A Village in Bengal shows daily life in a rural village, from community meetings and religious holidays to work in the fields. The images are reminiscent of Satyajit Ray’s first film, Pather Panchali: a lost paradise, preserved from urbanization and modernity. This is the India of our dreams.
