"As deeply beautiful and plainly poetic as any movie ever made. Rare and exquisite." - Hazel-Dawn Davenport, L.A. Weekly

The long-awaited dvd release of one of the most revered films of all time, the first of Satyajit Ray's masterful Apu Trilogy. One of the greatest directors of modern cinema, Satyajit Ray became an instant success with his debut film, Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road).

The first Indian film to ever become a hit in the West, Pather Panchali is the moving story of a rural family cursed with bad luck. Father Hari is a dreamer and poet, while his hard-working wife struggles to feed the family. Durga, a free-spirited petty thief, brings tragedy to the family in a moment's carelessness. Awarded many prizes at film festivals all over the world, Pather Panchali catapulted Satyajit Ray to international acclaim and launched one of the cinema's most distinguished careers.
