Mrinal Sen 90

Mrinal SenMrinal Sen is 90 today (May 14 2013) and all the best to him. I would argue that he is the greatest living film director, bare none.This YouTube page has some films by and on Sen:…2259.6576.0.9023.…0.0… (Thanks Abhijit). I will screen a number of Sen films – especially the Maoist period Calcutta films – Interview, Calcutta 71 and Padatik – in the monday night film screening slot in Autumn term at Goldsmiths. He gave Amitabh B his first break, he made Shabana A an actress, he showed Louis M the way round the city, and more and more. Come along to the screenings – check the what’s on back here or the Goldsmiths Centre for Cultural Studies events calendar for info in late September (it will also be a course for credit as part of the new MA Critical Asian Studies, but its open to all comers like other CCS courses).

  1. I’ve been meaning to see his films for some time now. I didnt know he gave the big B his leg up! Are there any CCS courses running this spring term that are open to the public?


    • Spring term courses, sure. As ever the Marx Capital course runs in Spring, starting 14 Jan. Probably also Text and Image, Biopolitics and Software Studies see here
