      Una historia inédita sobre la Guerra Fría y el continente africano, o sobre la derrota de un ideal, el internacionalismo, que las guerrillas cubanas no consiguieron defender. En África, a principios de la década de 1960, se enfrentaron cuatro adversarios con intereses encontrados: los soviéticos querían extender su influencia, Estados Unidos intentaba apoderarse de las riquezas naturales del continente, los antiguos imperios trataban de revivir su débil poderío colonial y las jóvenes naciones defendían su recién ganada independencia, armadas con un ideal: el internacionalismo. Los revolucionarios africanos como Patrice Lumumba, Amilcar Cabral y Agostinho Neto llamaron a las guerrillas cubanas para que les ayudasen en su lucha y los hombres de Fidel Castro desempeñaron un papel principal en el continente, desde la tragicómica aventura del Che Guevara en el Congo hasta el triunfo de la batalla de Cuito Cuanavale en Angola. Relataremos la historia, en gran parte desconocida, que se desarrolló entre 1961 y 1989, respaldada con información de archivo y entrevistas.

                En esta película Pasolini retrata la búsqueda de los rostros y lugares que habrán de dar vida a su versión de la tragedia de Esquilo. A través de la visita a tres Estados africanos modernos, Pasolini recoge impresiones sobre la vida política del continente, el crecimiento de sus naciones en medio de conflictos y todavía más allá, imagina su película a partir de comentarios y análisis estéticos de la asombrosa realidad africana. "Apuntes para una Orestiada africana" es un documental alucinante, y una brillante declaración de amor por el cine y la búsqueda por la expresión del espíritu humano.
