The Inner Eye

India, 1972 (MIFF 1974)

Director: Satyajit Ray

A film tribute to an eminent artist Binodebehari Mukherjee of Santiniketan. The art and life of Binodebehari is unique, for at birth he was blind in one eye and lost the other in 1953. and yet his art did not suffer. He continued to paint, guided by an inner vision. Satyajit Ray carefully analyses Binodebehari's stylistic development, then shows the blind artist at work.
