Mrinal Sen

Mrinal Sen (also spelled Mrinal Shen) is a Bengali Indian filmmaker. He was born on 14 May 1923, in the town of Faridpur, now in Bangladesh in a Hindu family. After finishing his high school there, he left home to come to Calcutta as a student and studied physics at the well-known Scottish Church College and at the University of Calcutta. As a student, he got involved with the cultural wing of the Communist Party. Although he never became a member of the party, his association with the socialist Indian People's Theatre Association (IPTA) brought him close to a number of like-minded culturally associated people.
