Imaginary Cinematheque

In 1990, I had the occasion to meet Satyajit Ray in Calcutta (now Kolkata) and asked him his “Imaginary Cinematheque” (ses films coups-de-coeur) and was expecting some titles. He suggested I come back after two days. When back, wouaw, a list of 43 films … Some of these were shown in conjunction with a retrospective of Ray’s films in 1993, in Brussels, at the Film Museum, in parallel to an exhibition I conceived a set of 4 exhibitions: on Ray’s drawings, one on the architecture of Calcutta w/ photographs by Fabien de Cugnac, an exhibition on Portraits of Ray by Nemai Ghosh, and and and an exhibition on Henri Cartier-Bresson in India.
