Satyajit Ray's film posters – in pictures

Devi (The Goddess), 1960: Ray often turned his camera on the dilemmas of women and their position in society. Here, a hallucinatory design illustrates a pivotal scene in his 19th-century period study of religious superstition, when an elderly man dreams his daughter-in-law is the embodiment of the Hindu goddess Kali. Here, the division of the young girl’s face represents her split identity.
