Deliverance (Sadgati)
Sadgati | Satyajit Ray, 1981
India | 52 minutes

One of Ray’s most uncompromising works was this unflinching short, told with stark visuals and the power of a parable. When a weakened Untouchable laborer falls while chopping wood, his death forces a landowner to deal with the ritual and emotional consequences, illuminating the complex burden of the caste system in vivid fashion.
