In Search of Famine/1981/Bengali

FiC Rating 5/5
Dir: Mrinal Sen
Why FiC Recommends?
1) This is a cinema within a cinema epitomizing the futility of this medium, Sen’s sharp writing and astute intuition projects cinema against the decaying carcass of social reality and class difference with an eerie and unsettling ambience.
2) Sen’s sublime craft is a scathing indictment on the fallacy of cinema as an idealist medium strictly reserved for the privileged, a scornful critique on the intellectuality surrounding this medium that only broadens the gulf between the upper and marginalized classes.
3) The true idiosyncrasy lies in the way it extends the themes of human condition and class struggles and embeds these with cinema which is as relevant now as it was during it’s release.
