Event Information

A charming and tender biopic paying tribute to a legend of Indian cinema, Abhijaan explores the incredible life and work of Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee, from his first foray into film acting as the lead character Apu in Satyajit Ray’s Apur Sansar, to countless other classic roles he has portrayed across his long distinguished career. 

Soumitra Chatterjee tells his own story while accompanied by a magnificent ‘who’s who’ of Bengali cinema.

The screening will be followed by a live panel discussion.

MAC’s reopening cinema programme has been generously supported by BFI FAN Covid-19 Resilience fund from the National Lottery, through the BFI Film Audience Fund.
