Notes Toward an African Orestes
aka Appunti per un'Orestiade africana
Screened in June 2013
Director: Pier Paolo Pasolini. Preliminary test footage in preparation for a never-filmed feature adaptation of the Oresteia, to be set in Uganda and Tanzania.
Twitter Capsule: Desultory at times, but a fascinating window into Pasolini's process, full of savvy auto-critique.
