Directed by Octavio Getino & Fernando E. Solanas | 1968

Hailed as the film that “established the paradigm of revolutionary activist cinema” (Sight & Sound), this epic, three-part documentary deploys a barrage of radical stylistic devices to rail against the scourge of neo-colonialism in Argentina and call for the overthrow of the country’s government. Made and screened in secret as an act of resistance, it’s an essential work of political filmmaking that has lost none of its galvanizing power.
