Anup Singh's 'The Name of a River' is an ambitious, evocative epic/essay/biopic that explores the life and work of the great Indian filmmaker, Ritwik Ghatak.
The film covers a huge area of visual, aural and intellectual ground within its 90 minutes, presenting its audience with a dreamlike odyssey through a history, a life and a work that we, the viewers, encounter in the shape of landscapes and music, lovers and gods, myths and memories, literature and cinema.
Singh's greatest achievement is that he has created a profound celebration and exploration of life itself through his staged encounter with the memory of Ghatak.
