From Third Cinema to Media Justice: Third World Majority and the Promise of Third Cinema uses the work of Third World Majority, a women of color media justice organization formed in the Bay Area of California and active from 2001 − 2008, as a case study to address a range of questions regarding the relationships between digital media makers and movements for social and economic justice, including media justice: What aesthetic innovations do digital media technologies open onto and what critiques and constructions of existing social and economic relations do those innovations support? To what extent is the work of Third World Majority continuous with a socially conscious tradition of film and media making and to what extent does the advent of digital media combined with the exigencies of the current conjuncture signal an historical rupture that asks that we think the relationship between media and social movements anew? How does the work of Third World Majority put retrospective pressure on the praxis of Third Cinema? What new scholarly avenues are opened up through a careful engagement with Third World Majority’s work? What critical theoretical insights might reinvigorate the work that Third World Majority accomplished, and how might those be mobilized to help inform today’s media justice activists?
