Abstract

This collection of essays is the first scholarly study undertaken on Bengali filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh and seeks to explore his work within the dynamics of a rapidly evolving film industry in Bengal and more broadly the cinematic landscape of India. Alison Macdonald finds the book a timely intervention which opens up the complexities of Indian art house cinema via Ghosh’s unique style, and writes that it would appeal to students and academics with a strong interest in cinematography and the politics of gender and queer theory.
