“I am going to propose here… that there is a category which can legitimately be called ‘Fourth Cinema’, by  which I mean Indigenous Cinema ― that’s Indigenous with a capital ‘I’… The phrase Fourth Cinema comes as a late addition to the First-Second-Third Cinema framework with which you will be familiar, First Cinema being American cinema; Second Cinema Art House cinema; and Third Cinema the cinema of the so-called Third World.”
