Abstract:

"An exploration of the creative crossings between the liberative stream of Edward Schillebeeckx's eschatological perspective and Third Cinema, Antonio D. Sison's work is interdisciplinary and innovative. Examining a variety of films - from independents such as Perfumed Nightmare and Xala to the Oscar-nominated Hotel Rwanda and Motorcycle Diaries - Sision builds an intertextual and intercultural dialogue between one of the greatest western theologians of our time and a cinema that has become all the more relevant in the light of global, sociopolitical struggles. Sison argues for the primacy of cinematic style as the locus for a theological interpretation of film over the prevailing practice of extracting the religious dimension from film's more thematic, literary basis."--BOOK JACKET.
