Cinema and revolution may not sound like ideal bedfellows. One speaks to industrial growth, ticket sales and celebrity cultures; the other to economic upheavals, egalitarianism and armed warfare. But many of Latin America’s revolutionary heroes have made a political weapon of film studios. And its filmmakers have found fascinating content in revolutionary struggles. This year, we want to be inspired by, engage with and challenge the relationship between cinema and revolution that has developed since the turn of the twentieth century in Latin America.
