El Nuevo Cine Argentino de los años sesenta. Ideología y utopía del cine como arma revolucionaria.

This article provides a historical overview of the New Argentine Cinema of the '60s, seeking not only to describe a historical period, but also situate the cinematographic of the revolutionary cinema as an element that actively pursued the construction of a new political conception about of the popular. It argues that the New Argentine Cinema is an attempt to transform the cinematographic practice in its entirety, through the destruction of the ways of production, distribution and exhibition of a film industry that was perceived as neo-colonial, dependent, imperialist and closely linked to a notion of cinema as spectacle and consumption, for the objectification, commodification and subordination of the masses. However, the effectiveness of the New Argentine Cinema is located at the symbolic level: in its ability to permeate the imagination of a radical content in which the cinematographic images contribute in setting up a militant ideological structure that springs from the anger caused by a dependent, unequal and oppressive present.
