Please note that, due to unforeseen circumstances, the screening time for this film has changed from those given in the EIFF Brochure. A River Called Titas will now show at 16:15 on Thursday 18 June.
The tragedies and heartaches of life on a Bengali river in the early 20th century. Lives intersect; shocking stories unfold... Master director Ritwik Ghatak films this extraordinary melodrama like a documentary: unforgettable images loom, while his famous experimental soundscapes add spice and modernity. A River Called Titas is a lyrical lament for Bengal from one of its devoted sons.
