You Say You Want a Revolution?

ABOUT THE SERIES

In the right hands, a camera can be a weapon—a weapon of liberation, an instrument of freedom. This series examines a movement in the 60s and 70s, of filmmakers of the Global South radically confront ideas of decolonization, revolution, and class inequalities (both of their past and present) through their art. These directors were as varied in their approaches as they were in the topics they covered and parts of the world that they came from. Decades later, the elites that were satirized, liberation movements documented, and cautionary tales told are no less relevant or resonant. This series presents highlights of the visionary work that would touch the world and leave a lasting impact.
