This book opens up for us an exciting intersection between cinema studies and theology in a way that few other books have done. The more common discussion of the interplay of these two disciplines correlates the themes that appear in the script of films with their counterpart in theological reflection. But Antonio Sison takes us to a different place. In his exploration of Third Cinema—a distinctive and challenging approach to film—he looks at how elements of style and cinematography relate to deep, fundamental turns in theology’sexploration of how God yearns for and guides human liberation. Third Cinema stands alone in its emphasis upon how the craft of filming can reflect the angle of vision of the poor and oppressed of the earth, see and experience their world, and how they shape that into their struggle for liberation. The films Sison explores in this book are sterling examples of this unique entry into the consciousness of the majority of the earth’s population, a consciousness that is largely ignored by the wealthy and privileged of the world. This portal into the colonized imagination offers the viewer an unexpected and suggestive challenge to rethink and to reenact relationships with those who are oppressed and seek liberation.

The book is an exploration of the creative crossings between the liberative stream of the eschatology of Edward Schillebeeckx and the stylistic strategies of “Third Cinema,” political cinema dedicated to the representation of Third World liberation.
