Mother was still in her body when the documentary was made. Few western journalists are interested in the project of Auroville in the seventies; but one of them, Jean-Pierre Elkabbach, came to investigate for “Antenne 2” in 1972. His documentary of 118 minutes reveal Auroville as it was at this time: several houses rising from the red desert, schools like Last School, the Pyramid or so called “yogurt pots” and of course the Matrimandir under construction.
The documentary includes also precious interviews, and among them Roger Anger and Kireet Joshi but also those from Aurovilians like Ruud, Jean P., Vicenzo, Rod H., and many others.
An exceptional documentary to discover or rediscover Auroville…
