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.
A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
