Berlinale Classics was launched a year ago as part of the Retrospective section of the Berlin International Film Festival. It presents elaborately restored cinema classics and rediscovered films in brilliant picture and sound quality at premieres with prominent guests.
Satyajit Ray's 1966 Bengali classic NAYAK starring Uttam Kumar and Sharmila Tagore is among the six films that will be showcased in the programme this year. In 1966, at the Berlinale world premiere of the film, Satyajit Ray was awarded a ''Special Mention for NAYAK and his complete works.''
