Louis Malle went to India (the Kalakshetra parts): full movie

The french Intellectual/ Director filming some awesome archival footage from the sixties of the South Indian dance school (established by british mystic-socialist Anne besant)

” A film Studio in Madras is just like a film studio in paris except for the garland of flowers around the camera”


“I must admit I liked some of these films , the incoherent dramatic plots, the constant twists and turns and onedimensional charecters and the constant intervention of magical forces”.

” inga…valathu kai… thoppai irukkonno?”  (precious!)

” moving from class to class, non believers burdened by our equipment, we noticed something quite striking. noone paid us the slightest attention.To them we didnt even exist. it almost hurt our feelings”

This is India. A worldview we don’t understand, a social heirarchy that puzzles us, an economic reality that shocks us  but also the hesitant fragile grace of two girls conversing with God.
