LIFF 2019: Ghost of the Golden Groves

Director: Aniket Dutta Roshni Sen
Starring: Joyraj Bhattacharjee, Debleena Sen, Soumyajit Majumder, Bidyut Das
Duration: 98 min

In the first tale of this delightful diptych strange incidents begin to occur to a road development officer from Kolkata visiting the Shonajhuri forest area - strange lights, anonymous voices, sinister wailing and a random encounter with a polymorph, all draw him deep into the treacherous web of the golden groves. In the second, based on a story by Bibutibhushan Bandyopadhyay (Pather Panchali), a poor cook gets the caretaker’s job at an abandoned house in the same forest and must deal with “the others”. Equal parts homage to Japanese New Wave horror like Onibaba and Woman In The Dunes, and the cinema of Satyajit Ray and Mrinal Sen, the film is breathtakingly original.
