Mikhail Kalatozov, Soy Cuba, 1964

ICA Cinematheque: We Must Discuss, We Must Invent!

8 Jul 20142 Sep 2014

Coinciding with the ICA exhibition Journal, this ICA Cinematheque season of screenings explores the artist’s role in bringing focus to a constantly changing world.

The films chosen represent powerful and provoking work by revolutionary directors who reacted to socio-historical events of their times. They derive from the Third Cinema movement that started in the 1960s and denote the adoption of an independent, often oppositional, stance towards commercial genres and mainstream cinema. They are the cinematic expression of our desire to assert our identities, despite the tendency of politics and culture to push towards homogenisation and subservience. They are undoubtedly a call for social transformation.

Read ICA Film and Cinema Co-ordinator Nico Marzano's blog post about Third Cinema on the ICA Blog.
