One of the concepts brought up in Solanas’ and Getino’s piece that I thought was interesting was how they explain that “film had been synonymous with show or amusement: in a word it was a consumer good” (2). I found this to be interesting because even though today there are many activist films and documentaries it seems as though film is still a consumer good. I would even argue that it seems activist and documentary films can still in fact be seen as consumer goods because the audience member is consuming the message. No matter what we are watching or when we are watching films, television, etc we are constantly being sold something. Whether it is an actual good or an idea – there’s always a message that someone is trying to get across. In some cases it could simply be amusement but in other cases it could be a more informative message. I feel as though media is ALWAYS trying to sell us something and we are always consuming a message whether we realize it or not.
