Satyajit Ray Negatives explores the obsessive fascination of a photographer for his only subject – Satyajit Ray, the great Indian filmaker.
This film follows Nemaï Ghosh, Ray's personal photographer who remembers the master. We venture in a journey through 90.000 pictures he shot of Ray, encounters with old common friends and film excerpts, in the heart of a boundless passion.
