Anup Singh's The Name of a River is an ambitious evocative epic/essay/biopic that explores the life and work of the great Indian filmmaker, Ritwik Ghatak. The film covers a huge area of visual, aural and intellectual ground within its 90 minutes, presenting its audience with a dreamlike odyssey through a history, a life and a work that we, the viewers, encounter in the shape of landscapes and music, lovers, gods, myths and memories, literature and cinema. Singh's greatest achievement is that he has created a profound celebration and exploration of life itself through his staged encounter with the memory of Ghatak. Extras include a director's commentary and biographies of Anup Singh and Ritwik Ghatak.
