Notes towards an African Orestes
DIRECTOR: PIER PAOLO PASOLINI
WRITER - PIER PAOLO PASOLINI
Pasolini’s excitingly freeform documentary charts his ambitions to make a film of the Greek tragedy of Orestes in Tanzania and Uganda. In Euripedes’s classic cycle of plays, the director saw metaphorical parallels to African nations that were emerging into independence in the sixties. Restored by Cineteca di Bologna.
