Last week’s US election is a testimony to the fact that citizens actually make use of their constitutional right when ballots are made accessible.

The Argentinean director Pino Solanas, who died in Paris last weekend, was both a militant and one of the greatest political storytellers in cinema. The release of his unforgettable landmark 1968 film The Hour of the Furnaces (La Hora del Los Hornos) saw Solanas become a reference point for young Europeans in turmoil, but despite winning awards at various festivals it was banned in Argentina for a long time. Across the documentary’s various chapters, Solanas foregrounds the theory of the Grupo Cine Liberación [The Liberation Film Group], an Argentine film movement and collective founded by Solanas together with the film’s co-director Octavio Getino and Gerardo Vallejo at the end of the ’60s. This is guerrilla cinema in its highest form, embracing radical formal experimentation and internationalist politics. Repertory images, archival sound, writings and judicious editing combine to engage the spectator emotionally – not only in the reconstruction of Argentinean history, but the wider context of Latin America too.
