Look into My Eyes - Gwen Araujo
Third Cinema relies on cinema, a medium which is most often a centralizing medium, a one to many medium. In many cases, cinema is used to literally make many people see the vision of a single auteur director. As a medium, cinema often is used in the interest of a revolutionary nationalism, asking for unity and compliance from a mass audience. In contrast, the Third World Majority uses digital media networks to distribute their films, allowing the many participants in their workshops to create many different visions that the user can select from in the Archive section of this Scalar book.
Lastly, the content of the Third World Majority's work extends Third Cinema by sharing a vision of decolonization that is concerned not only with the defeat of nation states and financial systems, but also with the everyday suffering and joy experienced by people with histories of colonial violence. In these ways, the Third World Majority offers an example of decolonial media praxis that emerges in the form of a network.
