Filmagra believes all films are political. To ignore this truth in our writing is to undermine the power of the medium. This site exists to fill the void of mainstream apolitical criticism and its persistence to define a film as “good” or “bad” solely based on its technical merit or enjoyability. All entries here are unapologetically concerned with a film’s political function.
Filmagra centers non-Hollywood, POC, indigenous, and queer cinema and discusses them beyond the dangerous gaze of identity politics that cherishes any minority led project simply because of its minority status. Above all, Filmagra is guided by an undying passion for cinema and expresses this love by adopting a feminist, cultural, social, racial, and class conscious outlook.
