A two-part documentary :
Bangladesh an I, du désespoir à l'espoir documentary by François Moreuil, 1973, 59 minutes • 5000 ans de civilisation documentary by François Moreuil, 1973, 65 minutes

In this fascinating and rare documentary shot during André Malraux's trips to Bangladesh and India, in 1973, we discover the writer, late in his life, still as committed to defending the cause of freedom and passionate about everything that surrounds him, men and women, works of art, architecture and ancestral rituals, delivering his thoughts in collected and dazzling formulas, offering luminous connections between Indian and Western art. We also see there, Malraux meditating on the reincarnation of souls on the banks of the Ganges, the millennial cradle of Indian civilization, in the city of Benares.
