This first part of the documentary by Octavio Gettino and Fernando Solanas - key representatives of the Latin American revolutionary film movement “Third Cinema” - entitled “Notes on neo-colonialism, violence and liberation” - develops a critical analysis of the oppression and authoritarianism in Latin America in the 1960s. With references to revolutionaries and by counterpointing documents, this film collage of a host of expressive cinematic media, introduces to cinema the aesthetics of a radical political treatise on collective struggles and the vision of a liberated time. It was filmed clandestinely during the dictatorship in Argentina and was screened in trade unions and student associations. According to Gettino: "every projection created a liberated space, a decolonized territory”.
