The Name of A River (Ekti nadir Naam)
- Website: www.edfilmfest.org.uk
A young couple meet and wander through the forests of Bengal. They hear folk music, take boat rides, encounter a theatre group and a disused airstrip - and slowly we realise that their journeys are a homage to Ritwik Ghatak, who Anup Singh never met, but whose passionate, modernist melodramas he admires. The Name of a River is sensually lovely in its own right; but for those familiar with Ghatak's movies, it sings. 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
