The Film Society of the Lincoln Center in New York is holding a Satyajit Ray retrospective from 15 to 30 April 2009.  In collaboration with Columbia University, the program includes 21 films. The great Indian director won an Academy Award before his death in 1992. He made thirty-seven films in his long and varied career. The retrospective follows on the heals of recent changes at the Film Society.
