Later this month, the Film Society of Lincoln Center will be presenting Long Shadows: The Late Work of Satyajit Ray, including all the films made by the iconic director in the autumnal years of his career. Certainly India’s most famed and well loved filmmaker, Ray revealed a more meditative side in these late films, which are not as readily available or screened as his pioneering classic films of the 1950s and 1960s.
