Political Film: The Dialectics of Third Cinema

(Pluto Press 2001)

Third Cinema emerged as part of the anti-imperialist conjuncture in the developing world in the 1960s and 1970s. But its theory and practice and its complex relations of dialogic critique with both dominant and art house cinema make it a more universally significant intersection of film and politics, both geographically and historically. This book explores the dialectics of Third Cinema.
