In their manifesto Towards A Third Cinema, Fernando Solañas and Octavio Getino advocate for films that “mobilise, agitate and politicise”.
They argue that: “The existence of a revolutionary cinema is inconceivable without the constant and methodical exercise of practice, search, and experimentation. It even means committing the new film-maker to take chances on the unknown, to leap into space. […] Inventing film forms and structures that serve a more profound vision of our reality resides in the ability to place oneself on the outside limits of the familiar, to make one's way amid constant dangers.”
I have selected just some of the films that I love that do this.
