Experimental Bengali Movie DVD Release - Five No-Budget Films by Little Fish Eat Big Fish: Kolkata Book Fair 2010

In the best of Calcutta traditions, a group of smart intellectual Bengali cinema enthusiasts have decided to challenge the decay in Indian cinema driven by commercial box-office greed and subsequent erosion of quality in mainstream Indian cinema being produced commercially and the increasing capability of a hitherto smart audience to digest kitsch.

This group calls themselves Little Fish Eat Big Fish. They write in their blog, "Therefore, we view the existence of a "producer" in the process of film making as an unwanted intervention of the consumerist culture to control and, thereby, subjugate the auteur.". They go on to boldly pursue their goals of great film-making, and challenge film-lovers "to come and see what kind of quality a no budget film can deliver."

Bengali cinema still leads India - Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury's 2008 film Antaheen (DVD) just won the Best Film National awards a few hours ago. Along with the commendable efforts of groups like Little Fish Eat Big Fish, the Bengali film lover can be sure Bangla cinema will continue its remarkable eloquence and position of prestige and acclaim as a showcase of the best of Indian film makers.
