Review

'A superb new documentary. Drawing from interviews with a diverse group of Satyajit Ray's colleagues and supporters including Ravi Shankar, Martin Scorsese and others, Kumar's documentary is a quiet, subtle meditation on the life and art of one of the world's greatest filmmakers. Crafted through a dreamy series of still shots of interviewees and moving clips from Ray's films, THE SONG OF THE LITTLE ROAD is a testament to the significant contributions Ray made in his lifetime as well as the perseverance of dedicated film archivists and Ray admirers who have helped save his works from near disintegration. Includes interviews with Ismail Merchant, Mike Pogorzelski.' Head of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Film Archive, and more' - American Cinematheque --American Cinematheque

'Pick of the Week' Los Angeles Times --Los Angeles Times

The director Satyajit Ray was to India what Fellini was to Italy and Bergman to Sweden - an artist whose momentous achievements virtually defined a national cinema. This documentary by Priyanka Kumar is a thoughtful, intelligent examination of Ray's life and legacy...' The Film Watch, Telluride, Colorado --The Film Watch

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
World Cinema was, to a large extent, defined and magnificently represented by the proponent and master of Indian Film art, Satyajit Ray. Although he wrote and directed a vast variety of universal and humanistic movies for decades, most film scholars agree that Ray hit an early peak in his `Apu Trilogy' from the late 1950's. When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to honor the Bengali filmmaker with a Lifetime Achievement Award, it was discovered that almost all of his `Masterworks' were in dire need of repair and restoration.

"The Song of the Little Road," the debut film of writer and filmmaker Priyanka Kumar is a fascinating and enchanting look at the restoration process of Ray's narrative masterpieces and of the need for continued efforts in this cultural goldmine. Interviews with film scholars, practitioners (Producers and Directors) and film restorationists are interwoven with tantalizing clips including the only-recently released "Devi" ("Goddess"), that give a sense of the importance of preserving Satyajit Ray's gifts to all humanity. This Documentary is highly recommended to Ray followers, as well as to lovers of quality cinema and it's preservation for future generations.

A fascinating look at the impressive works by master filmmaker Satyajit Ray, and the importance of preservation efforts for his films and that of all filmmakers. If you are a fan of Ray, you will appreciate this reflective look at his work and the passionate voices of Martin Scorsese, Ismail Merchant and Ravi Shankar on this subject.

I was not a fan or follower of Ray but after seeing this movie, which I watched because of Martin Scorcese's involvement, I have found a new appreciation for inspiration and a path that great artists follow. Ray influenced Scorcese and I am influenced by Scorcese and this film has helped me continue down my path.

I saw this movie in Santa Fe, New Mexico in January 2008, with Ms. Kumar speaking beforehand. The film is brilliant, and thoroughly evokes the world of Satyajit Ray. Interviewees include film critic Peter Rainer, musician Ravi Shankar and filmmakers Martin Scorsese & Ismail Merchant.
