Before I left for l.a., I read pasquale verdicchio's translation of pasolini's the savage father. It was required reading for the workshop that Walter has organized. Fascinating screenplay, or whatever it is. Interesting take on the complicated redemptive power of poetry. I haven't figured the whole thing out yet. How it does and does not fall into those patterns of how white people talk about Africa. Which is because it seems a lot more complicated than a lot of this work. It might work for this anthology I've been thinking about doing.
