(out of series) Appunti per un film sull’India (my tv)

Pasolini gave Radiotelevisione Italiana 1/2 hour of ethnography on letting one’s self be eaten by a hungry tiger, touching harijan, opinions on forced sterilization, the sub-proletariat, and class relations. He lets various Indian intellectuals imagine part of his unmade film for him. Interesting n part for Pasolini’s ability to think about Indian religion in 1968 without becoming a Beatles™ -like convert. Would make a good double feature with The Darjeeling Limited.
