The Adventures of Goopy and Bagha (1968) - Ghost Dance Sequence - Google Video

I have no idea what to make of this. The Adventures of Goopy and Bagha (1968) - Ghost Dance Sequence is something that BoingBoing refers to as "Ethnic psychedelia by India's filmic Shakespeare". If somebody wants to comment and clarify the connection to Shakespeare, feel free. I'm guessing that "filmic Shakespeare" is like "Kenneth Brannagh."

Shakespeare...In the sense that Ray's oeuvre constitutes a searching portrayal of a vast swath of Indian/Human society. What Shakespeare did in theatre/print Ray did in film, in his own way.

Ah! So he's more of a creator in his own right, not merely a carrier of the Shakespeare torch. Very cool. Thanks Avi!
