|From the book --
Veteran film maker Mrinal Sen has always seen his life and work as part of the social and political fabric of the time. As he has continued to experiment with cinema over decades, evolving his own quest in response to the changing times, he has also maintained an acute social critique which shows in his films, writings, and interviews.
This collection encapsulates close to half century of film making. It includes original writings -- memoirs, letters, musings on politics, literature, theatre and cinema.
