The Elephant God
Joi Baba Felunath | Satyajit Ray, 1979
India | 112 minutes

It’s a whodunit on the Ganges when a priceless Ganesh figurine is stolen from its safe in the dead of night. On the case as always is Ray’s gumshoe Feluda, with his trusty sidekick in tow. Showcasing a vividly shot Benares, Ray’s jaunty caper features an equally colorful cast of supporting characters, including a gutless body builder and an aging knife thrower. Restored by the Satyajit Ray Preservation Project at the Academy Film Archive. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
