    Tlight Rabindranath & Sikkim - 2 rare documentaries by Satyajit Ray [Repost]

    arkenduk presents,

    2 rare documentaries by Satyajit Ray,

    Rabindranath Tagore (1961)



    Producer: Films Division, Govt. of India

    Script. commentary & Direction: Satyajit Ray

    Cinematography: Soumendu Roy

    Editing: Dulal Dutta

    Art Direction: Bansi Chandragupta

    Music: Jyotirindra Moitra

    Cast:

    Raya Chatterjee, Sovanlal Ganguli, Smaran Ghosal, Purnendu Mukherjee, Kallol Bose, Subir Bose, Phani Nan, Norman Ellis

    Summary:

    The documentary details the life and work of the celebrated Bengali writer Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941). He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 “because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill, he has made his poetic thought, expressed in his own English words, a part of the literature of the West.” Rabindranath Tagore was the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, born in Calcutta. He was educated at home. At seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, which he did not complete. Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honor as a protest against British policies in India.
    The documentary was made to celebrate Tagore’s birth centenary in May 1961. Ray was conscious that he was making an official portrait of India’s celebrated poet and hence the film does not include any controversial aspects of Tagore’s life. However, it is far from being a propaganda film.

    The film comprises dramatized episodes from the poet’s life and archived images and documents.

    Awards:

    President's Gold Medal, New Delhi, 1961
    Golden Seal, Locarno, 1961
    Special Mention, Montevideo, 1962

    SIKKIM (1971):



    Summary:

    Sikkim was a small princely state in the Himalayas. This documentary was commissioned by - then ruler of Sikkim - Chogyal of Sikkim and his then wife, an American, Hope Cook.

    The film suffered double censorship of the film's commissioners and of the Indian government, when Sikkim was reconnected to India in 1975.

    For a long time the film had been lost. Recently (Jan, 2003) a good quality print was found safe in the British Film Institute (BFI).

    Despite the censorship, Ray reportedly did manage to retain its seven-minute opening and the ending. The opening sequence is an evocation of atmosphere - beginning with a shot of a parallel ropeway with two carriages advancing towards each other, prompted Ray to note, "While they're reaching this point, I cut to a shot of a piece of telegraph wire. It's raining and there are two drops of rain approaching on a downward curve. It's a very poetic seven minutes. And the end is also very lively, very optimistic, with children, happy, laughing, smoking, singing. The whole thing builds up into a paean of praise for the placer".

    Producer: The Chogyal of Sikkim

    Script, commentary & Direction: Satyajit Ray

    Cinematography: Soumendu Roy

    Editing: Dulal Dutta

    Sound: Satyajit Ray

    Music: Satyajit Ray
