Satyajit Ray classic NAYAK to be screened in Retrospective section of the Berlin International Film Festival

Satyajit Ray classic NAYAK Berlinale Classics was launched a year ago as part of the Retrospective section of the Berlin International Film Festival. It presents elaborately restored cinema classics and rediscovered films in brilliant picture and sound quality at premieres with prominent guests.

Satyajit Ray Classic NAYAK starring Uttam Kumar and Sharmila Tagore is among the six films that will be showcased in the programme this year. In 1966, at the Berlinale world premiere of the film, Satyajit Ray was awarded a “Special Mention for NAYAK and his complete works.”

It will join an illustrious list of films such as Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Stiftung’s digitally restored version of Robert Wiene’s masterpiece DAS CABINET DES DR. CALIGARI (THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI) and Nicholas Ray’s REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (USA 1955).  This new 4K DCP version of the James Dean starrer will have an international premiere. It is produced from the original CinemaScope negative and scanned in 8K resolution and restored by Warner Bros. in collaboration with The Film Foundation, whose founder Martin Scorsese will personally present the film.
