This book is an introduction to the films of Mrinal Sen, helping provide the historical and cultural context in which his work needs to be studied.


In this introductory overview, complete with a filmography and a select bibliography, readers are familiarized with his oeuvre and the social and political commitment that informs the body of his work. His films are examined thematically and the connection between his life, the times, the socio-political context and his work is articulated in some detail.
