Cinema Klandestino and Cinemachete @ the Cube
Thursday March 19th. 7pm
Cinema Klandestino presents a night of screenings and performance in collaboration with Movimiento Cinemachete.
Cinemachete is a radical, international filmmaking movement, born in 2007 in the underground cafes, bars and art cinemas of Bogota, Colombia. Influenced by the revolutionary 'Third Cinema' movement that exploded all over Latin America in the 1960s, they are working to revive and reinvent political filmmaking for the 21st century.
