All English translations to date of 'Hacia un tercer cine' ('Toward a Third Cinema'), by Fernando Solanas and Octavio Getino, are based on the original publication in Spanish of the article in the October 1969 issue of Tricontinental (Havana). However, Solanas and Getino published a revised version in 1970, with the same title, which reflected the development of their thinking following the experience of the Cine Liberacion group's extensive, and often clandestine, screenings of The Hour of the Furnaces. This article translates and discusses some of the most pertinent changes in the previously untranslated (and unacknowledged) revision; in particular, their evolving thought on Third Cinema, militant cinema and the 'instrumentalisation' of cinema in the rapidly changing political environment in Argentina at the time.
