Storyline

"Tells the story of a group of Chilean children who discover a larger reality and a different world through the cinema. Each Saturday, Alicia Vega transforms the chapel of Lo Hermida into a film screening room as she conducts a workshop for children under the auspices of the Catholic church. The hundred or so children involved had never seen a movie, and in the workshop they see and learn about the cinema: photograms and moving images, projection, camera angles and movement, film genres, and much more. And they watch movies: Chaplin, Disney, Lamorisse's 'The Red Balloon,' the Lumieres' 'The Arrival of the Train to the Station.' Finally, each child designs his own film with drawings. And then, for the first time in most of their lives, the children got to the movies in downtown Santiago." [from the video container] Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

A documentary for future film makers
16 November 2000 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

If you wanna know why it will be great to make a movie the children in this movie will tell you. Seeing the looks on their faces when they watch films of the Lumiere brothers or Charlie Chaplin is the best feeling you could ever experience sitting in your home watching a foreign documentary.
