Ruins of Delhi
Attractive travelogue filmed in and around Delhi's Qutb complex.
Interest film 1910 4 mins Silent
This attractive travelogue, by turns picturesque and statuesque, is centred on the imposing ruined structures of the Qutb complex at Mehrauli in south-west Delhi. The filmmakers also film scenes of the community life surrounding the complex - images with a distinctly pastoral flavour. Like many early travel films, this French production itself travelled widely - hence the existence of an English language version for the Anglo-American market.
