Film has been an integral part of revolution, change and aspirations for a more just world in Latin America. During the 1960-70’s the documentation of repression during the years of dictatorship produced a very potent form of cinematic critique. This has laid the foundations for the continuing role of film in documenting and interpreting the cotemporary social inequality and violence. Film has become an important vehicle for witnessing, especially within the human rights tradition and a vehicle of glocalisation –in being able to reveal and interpret local experience and everyday lives in terms of the global economic and political processes.
