Synopsis

A personal view of Indian cinema by director Mrinal Sen. He imagines an animated couple who have seen every Indian movie ever made and who devote their lives to researching Indian cinema and asking awkward, funny, profound and near-profound questions. They look at Pather Panchali as a starting point and through contributions from film historians, archivists, and filmmakers try to fill in the gaps in their understanding of Indian cinema.
