Saturday Matinee: The Home and the World

“Ghare Baire” (“The Home and the World” ) is a 1984 Bengali film directed by Satyajit Ray and based on the novel of the same name by Rabindranath Tagore. Ray began the script for it in the 1940s, long before his first film Pather Panchali. It’s a period piece set in 1907 yet deals with still-timely issues such as the tensions between the personal and political, freedom and security, tradition and change, internationalism and imperialism, nationalism and xenophobia, and populism and demagoguery.
