Tamarind Art Council Presents "Chaturanga (Four chapters)" a Film by Suman Mukhopadhyay


New York, NY, December 11, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Tamarind Art Council with generous support from Real Talk Films is proud to present the 2008 film, “Chaturanga (four chapters).” adapted from the novel by Nobel Prize winning author, Rabindranath Tagore, and directed by Suman Mukhopadhyay, one of India’s most promising young filmmakers working in India today.

Saturday 13 December, 2008; 3:00- 6:00PM

Screening will begin at 3pm sharp

To attend RSVP to rsvp@tamarindart.com or 212-200-8000 ext 105

Screening is free but contribution towards an honorarium for the director is appreciated.

Chaturanga is the story of a love that is caught between conflicting worlds of ideas and becomes, after a point, a psychodrama of unbelievable cruelty. Set in Colonial Bengal at the turn of the twentieth century, the film weaves a rich tapestry of crisscrossing desires and moralities. The award winning cast includes Dhritiman Chaterji,Rituparna Sengupta, Joy Sengupta, Kabir Suma, and Subrata Dutta as Sachish.

The film’s music creates a soundscape that expresses feelings that cannot be uttered. Taken from folk traditions of Bengal and North India that are eclectic blends of Islamic, Buddhist, and lower caste Hindu thought, the music evokes a blend of eroticism and divinity.

The film is 125 minutes long and is presented in the Bengali language.
