Legendary film-maker of the Indian subcontinent Mrinal Sen passed away at the age of 95 on December 30 last year. Today is the deceased legend's first death anniversary. 

Mrinal primarily made films in Bangla and Hindi. He was also an ardent Marxist. His earlier films consisted of left-leaning and Marxist approaches to Indian society.

Mrinal's death also marked the end of the age of the three great film-makers of the Indian subcontinent- the other two being Satyajit Ray, and Ritwik Ghatak.  

Mrinal, Satyajit, and Ritwik pioneered the New Wave film movement in India during the 1960's. Their films received critical acclaim from every corner of the earth, and their work is considered to be timeless classics with a universal artistic appeal.

Just like his contemporaries Satyajit and Ritwik, Mrinal's ancestral home is also in Bangladesh. He was born in Faridpur on May 14, 1923.

To commemorate the legend, many different programs will be held by film enthusiasts in various countries of the world. 

According to a press release from Moviyana Film Society, a special memorial program - with discussion on Mrinal's life and films - will be held today at room 701 of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy's National Theatre Gallery building. The event, which is open for all, will begin at 5:30pm. 

The discussants for the event will be film-maker and film teacher Haider Rizvi, film society activist Hashem Sufi, and the President of Moviyana Film Society Belayet Hossain Mamun, who is also a film-maker and writer.
