Thurs, May 1 -- 7 PM


The Home and the World (Ghare-Baire) (1984), 140 mins. 

Ray’s The Home and the World concerns an aristocratic but progressive man, who insisting on broadening his more traditional wife’s political horizons, drives her into the arms of a friend. An elegant, profound, and meditative work from the late-career of a master.

Thurs, May 8 -- 7 PM


The Stranger (Aguntuk) (1991), 120 mins.

In his final film, Ray tells the story of a bourgeois couple who receive news that a man claiming to be the wife’s long-lost uncle will be staying with them after years of travel. The Stranger is a complex and humane portrait of a world both corrupt and sadly beautiful.
