the film comment podcast: ritwik ghatak and vetri maaran

I guest-hosted a special two-part episode of The Film Comment Podcast, dedicated to a pair of Indian filmmakers: Bengali maestro Ritwik Ghatak, and Tamil writer-director Vetri Maaran. For the first half, I was joined by Moinak Biswas and Richard Peña, the co-organizers of the recent Ghatak retrospective at Film at Lincoln Center. In the second half, I chatted with R. Emmet Sweeney, who wrote a feature on Vetri Maaran in Film Comment‘s November-December 2019 issue. First posted on Film Comment on November 6, 2019.
