For Having Loved Too Much... THIRD CINEMA?

10.28.16 - 11.19.16

...We must discuss, we must invent..." - Frantz Fanon

THIRD CINEMA? is a two-part exploration in the form of a reading group and screening series, focusing of the aesthetic and political project expressed by the cinema, writings and filmmaking practices that have been historically categorized by that name.

Over the next four weeks, we will screen a series of works surveying the time and places (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Bolivia) of the 1960s-70s Tercer Cine movement, focusing especially on its earliest stages in Latin America.

Alongside this, for anyone who wishes to participate, filmfront will host a reading group, meeting every Thursday for the duration of the series, to discuss the various writings and manifestos that helped to originate the movement.
