This here is a rather interesting 9-minute short from director Octavio Cortazar who takes a camera to a remote village to show people a motion picture for the first time. We start off by seeing the truck that is going to take the director, his crew and the equipment around and then we see the people from the villagers and get their reaction from seeing Chaplin's MODERN TIMES. This here is certainly a rather unique and fun short that gives the viewer a rare glimpse at some people and an even rarer chance to see their reaction to seeing a movie for the first time. As a film buff you can't help but wonder what it must be like for some of the adults to see a movie for the first time ever and their reactions are quite memorable to say the least.
