Abstract
In this article we propose a rereading of experiments in ideological and aesthetic engagement conducted by European and Latin-American film-makers in a bid to establish a post-colonial cinema in Mozambique. In order to do this we shall begin by locating this cinematographic 'Third Worldism' within the global context of ideas, utopias, and militant idealism that configured the ethics and aesthetics of the 'cinema-action' in vogue during the 1960s and 1970s. Next, we will discuss the vicissitudes and certain disenchantments that marked the participation of these European and Latin-American film-makers in this Mozambican adventure, hoping, by so doing, to evince the limits and contradictions of anti-colonialism and Third Worldism within the cinematographic field in general.
