Aparajito-Apu-in-Benares-Copy

The Apu Trilogy comprises three Indian films directed by renowned Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray: Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road, 1955), Aparajito (The Unvanquished, 1956) and Apur Sansar (The World of Apu, 1959). The three films comprise a „coming of age“ narrative; they describe the childhood, boyhood and early maturity of a young Indian named Apu in the early part of the 20th century. The three films went on to win many national and international awards, including three National Film Awards and seven awards from the Cannes, Berlin and Venice Film Festivals. They are today frequently listed among the greatest films of all time and are often cited as the greatest films in the history of Indian cinema. Each of these films stands on its own as a tender visually radiant journey. They are among the most achingly beautiful, richly humane films ever made—essential works for any film lover.
