The poet-director's "Swapner Din... Chased by Dreams" and "Kalpurush... Memories in the Mist", starring Rahul and Sameera, are in Bengali and awaiting commercial release in India.
"Swapner Din" was screened under the Masters of World Cinema section at the recent Toronto Film Festival. The film is travelling to at least 30 other international film festivals.
Buddhadeb had bagged the Special Award for Best Director in the 2000 Venice Film Festival for his film "Uttara" (The Wrestler), 43 years after Satyajit Ray's second of the famous Apu trilogy "Aparajito" won The Golden Lion at Venice.
Journeys are what fascinate filmmaker Buddhadeb. So his films like "Mondo Meyer Upakhyan", "Uttara" and "Lal Darja" (The Red Door) deal with magical journeys in the lost world of innocence and fantasy, inspired by filmmakers like Luis Bunuel.
Mondo Meyer Upakhyan - Synopsis
ItÂs the late 60s in rural Bengal, Lati (Samata Das), the virginal daughter of a Rajani (Rituparna Sengupta), one of the most popular of the village prostitutes, wants desperately to get an education rather than follow in her motherÂs footsteps. But Rajani has noticed that the all-powerful local businessman Natabar Paladhi (Ramgopal Bajaj), the lecherous owner of the local cinema amongst other things, has his eye on her, with the potential promise of a (financially) easier life. Lati seeks the help of schoolteacher Nagen (Pradeep Mukherjee) to leave her village for a better life.
