The Name of a River is an ambitious, evocative epic-cum-essay-cum-biopic that explores the life and work of the great Indian filmmaker Ritwik Ghatak. The film covers an enormous wealth of visual, aural and intellectual ground within its 90 minutes, presenting its audience with a dreamlike odyssey through a history, a life and a work that we, the viewers, encounter in the shape of landscapes and music, lovers and gods, myths and memories, literature and cinema.
