Narrated in the style of a cinematic notebook, Pasolini’s interest in adapting the ancient tragedy for the screen using African actors is mixed with a stubbornly colonial look at realities in Tanzania, Uganda and Ethiopia. The documentary is a preparatory documentary to the "film to be made", and it could be described as a real notebook of moving images. It is divided into three different types of film material. The first is a travel documentary, shot during two stays in Uganda and Tanzania (respectively in December 1968 and in February 1969) integrated with several newsreels of the war in Biafra (1967/69); the goal was to track down the places, faces, objects to the film adaptation of the Oresteia by Aeschylus. The second is a debate / confrontation between Pasolini and some African students at the University "La Sapienza" of Rome on the idea of the Aeschylus tragedy setting, and the implications of post-colonial African affairs. The third is a sort of variation on the theme and consists of a jazz session performed by Yvonne Murray and Archie Savage at FolkStudio in Rome.
Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween.
Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
