Rocha que Voa



...during the 60's...

in the cultural colonization,

the cultural underdevelopment...

But, in fact,

Latin American intellectuals...

are still colonized because

they keep...

obeying to the colonizing


as their own action instrument.

They weren't able to be revolutionary

in face of the colonizing action...

and that was clear through

a colonizing language.

Not because they learned

to read French and English...

they learned the European

and American thinking...

that they applied this thinking

to study their own reality...

they were in contradiction,


Because there wasn't a political

practice, because there wasn't...

a social and political revolution,

they couldn't envisin...

a new language

nor detach themselves...

from all this rationality

by the bourgeois culture.

...broadcast from America...


from Havana, Cuba...

the first free territory

in America.

...of America...

Let's raise our heads...

because there is a lot

we must fight for...

a lot to do!

S0ME DAY IN N0VEMBER 1971 in America...

Latin American cinema...

reflects the Latin American

political situation.

The first two main Latin American

movements were:

Cuban cinema, which emerged

with the revolution...

and Brazilian Cinema Novo,

which came after Cuban cinema...

in 1962, 1963.

Working under different


because Cuba is a socialist country

and Brazil is a capitalist country...

but these two cinemas related

in several aspects.

They had cultural independency...

from the imperialist system,


directly with the social,

political and cultural problems...

in Latin America.

Also because...

they faced the same problems to gain

the market controlled by imperialism...

technical deficiency problems...

caused by technical


Both have problems,

but they are very organized.

A spontaneous organization,

because Latin American filmmakers...

are very united,

although with few differences...

aesthetical and ideological ones...

as to the situation of each country,

but they are united...

in the common ideal

to conquer...

Latin American market and free it

from the American occupation.

And this is related to the economical

liberation of the peoples...

and the substitution

of the imperialist language...

of the colonizer,

for a new language...

of Latin American cinema.

In the early 70's...

Cuba was diplomatically

isolated as a country.

But at the same time that

Cuba suffered...

these sanctions,

the country started to receive...

personalities from

the Latin American culture.

A Brazilian filmmaker,

Glauber Rocha...

To Latin Americans

it means that...

except for Cinema Novo,

which is extinct...

because it's filmmakers

are either in Brazil...

or out of Brazil,

secretly trying...

to keep fighting both

politically and in films...

and wanting this victory.

So, Latin American cinema...

will be in a few years,

a new phenomenon...

and a very important one,

politically speaking...

because it will be the first

cultural movement...

The first art movement

to unify culture and politics... Latin America.

- Cinema?


As an artist,

he was a revolutionary...


innovated the cinema language.

And he also was...

an essential revolutionary.

Glauber started his Cuban phase

just like one of us.

And his name was growing,

and Cuban cinema was surfacing.



And we, from the start...

set our destiny together

with that of Latin America.
