The Cloud-Capped Star (Cinema East)
Tuesday, May 12, 2020 5:45 PM
"Arguably Ghatak’s finest work, The Cloud-Capped Star is a dark melodrama set in late 1950s Calcutta about a refugee family and the struggle of Nita, the oldest daughter, to keep them afloat and together. It is a bitter critique of the family as institution and also of the harsh social and economic conditions arising from Partition – the trauma that defined Ghatak as an artist. With its sparse script, audacious expressionist soundtrack and a startling cinematic elegance, The Cloud-Capped Star is undoubtedly a modern masterpiece – infinitely compassionate and humane while remaining resolutely unsentimental." —BFI
