Gobierno de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires Festivales de Buenos Aires


18 April 2012

C3M – Cinemateca del Tercer Mundo, by Uruguayan director Lucía Jacob, narrates how the 1960s film festival organized by the magazine Marcha took a political turn after the May ’68 in France and the discovery of Cuban films in a storeroom. This scenario gave birth to a type of militant cinema made in response to the political context of those years. Over forty years later, many of the protagonists of the time are reunited in front of the camera to see those films and share their memories and thoughts in a touching story illustrative of that special moment of their country. The documentary will be screened this coming Sunday 22. There are tickets available, which can be purchased at the Festival’s ticket outlets and on this website.

Cinemateca is actually an unfinished film by Lucía Jacob, who died last year at an early age, which was completed by her father, filmmaker Mario Jacob, in a clear homage to its founders, including notably the unique Walter Achúgar, among others. In 2011, the film was awarded by Uruguay’s Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts in the Television Content category.
