Mrinal Sen’s Biography
Born into a large middle-class family, Mr Senen grew up in a context of involvement in the British anti-colonial nationalist struggle and in an enlightened environment. Indeed, his family rejects the caste system and denounces religious obscurantism.
In 1948, Sen joined IPTA, the vanguard cultural organization affiliated with the Communist Party of India, which had a major influence on theater and cinema in the 1940s and 1950s. His first films will be marked, taking the path of political agitation, even propaganda (agit-prop). His political speech will be refined, becoming more personal with maturity. The first fight he waged is against misery and famine: criticizing “the good intentions ” of the Tagorian bourgeois humanism, Sen refuses to show a “dignified poverty”. Because, for him, the painting of a “dignified poverty” will never disturb the good conscience of the establishment. He does not think, however, that a simple, realistic description is a positive solution. He believes that “since poverty, drought, famine and social injustice are dominant facts of my time, my job as a filmmaker is to understand the reasons for it … (which implies) political and social commitment. “(in : Yves Thoraval, The Cinemas of India, L’Harmattan, 1998)
