Cinema is of the arts that hold a greater power of communication and transformation, among those that exist, since it is undeniable that through it we can know different cultures and peoples, innumerable realities present or of distant times. There are countless works carried out around the world that end up influencing the intellectual formation of much of the humanity that watches them. In the making of a cinematographic work we find a set of arts (literature, photography, painting, music, performing arts …) that by uniting in a way so peculiar and harmonious, allow us to watch the phenomenon we usually call “magic” [of cinema].
To talk about the importance of this unparalleled art we invite Tristan Aronovich, Brazilian filmmaker who shared some of his vision on the importance of cinema in the cultural development of humanity. Among his major works are the following national and international films: “Elite Squad 2” (member of the second unit direction team), “Far West” (as an actor and producer), “Wireless” and “Anyone Out There” (both as director, actor, producer, composer and screenwriter).
