At the end of the 1960s, contemporary Latin American cinema conquered Europe's film festivals. The works left their traces on political films all over the world during the 1960s and 70s. The publicist Peter B. Schuhmann placed a central role in the West German reception of what became known as Third Cinema from Latin America. In 1970, he made two documentaries KINO IN OPPOSITION (Cinema in Opposition) and KINO IM UNTERGRUND (Cinema in the Underground), which were key to explaining the origins of this new film movement in West Germany. Through interviews with filmmakers such as Jorge Sanjinés, Fernando Solanas, and Mario Handler, Schumann explored the personal interests and common intentions of the directors. (ft) (11.1.)
