'Militant Cinema: An Internal Category of Third Cinema' and 'The Cinema as Political Fact', translated here into English for the first time, were written by Octavio Getino to further elaborate the concept of Third Cinema first defined in the article 'Towards a Third Cinema' that Getino wrote with Fernando Solanas in 1969. The text is thus a theoretical reflection on the film-making practice of Cine Liberacion and other groups, particularly in relation to the Peronist movement in Argentina. Leaving the question of what aesthetic forms were appropriate for militant cinema radically open, Getino defines militant cinema as practices of film-making, distribution and exhibition that operate as an instrument of specific political organisations. In this form of political practice, the screening becomes a 'cine-accion' - a 'cinema event' that transforms spectators into political actors participating in a process of liberation.
