Motion Pictures for the Study of India: A Guide to Classroom Films.
Vestal, Theodore M.
After a three year review of films on India available in the United States, the Resource Center offered this guide to those motion pictures adjudged best for use in American classrooms. There are twelve documentary films and four commercial feature films included for use at any level of school, college, or university study: Child of the Streets; A Future of Ram; Gandhi (Twentieth Century Series); Gandhi (Biography Series); I Am Twenty; Image of India: The Hindu Way; India: Haunting Passage; Kipling's India; North Indian Village; Radha and Krishna; and, The Sword and the Flute. The feature film section is limited to four Bengali Features, produced and directed by Satyajit Ray, because they are the best and most appropriate for audiences in the United States. SO 001 619 through SO 001 623 are related documents. (Author/SBE)
