Amongst the most critically acclaimed films of all time
The saga of Apu and his family continues in Aparajito (The Unvanquished), the second chapter in director Satyajit Ray's legendary cinematic masterpiece, The Apu Trilogy (Pather Panchali, Aparajito, The World of Apu). Following Apu and his family to the city, Ray explores the crowded streets and busy waterfront, introducing us to a gallery of unforgettable images and characters. But when tragedy strikes Apu's family, the boy becomes a man and must choose between the life his father chose - a life of duty and disappointment - or a life of his own. Aparajito won first prize, the Golden Lion, at Venice in 1957, while director Satyajit Ray went on to win an Honorary Academy Award, 1991.
