In addition to his work as a filmmaker, Satyajit Ray was also an excellent graphic designer. He put this skill to good use, creating his own posters for many of his films. Ray used a unique fusion poster art, which blended modern European techniques with traditional Indian and Asian forms. The posters often comprise dreamlike collages, incorporating portraits, imagery and lettering from scenes of the film. He loved experimenting with typefaces in both English and Bengali. Far more than mere eye-catching advertisements, each poster provides the viewer with Rays own interpretation of his film, condensed into a single image. The first film in the Apu trilogy, Pather Panchali depicts the childhood of the protagonist Apu (Subir Banerjee) and his elder sister Durga (Uma Dasgupta) and the harsh village life of their poor family.
