One Hundred Children Waiting for a Train
Cien niños esperando un tren
Ignacio Agüero, Chile 1988, 56 min.
One Hundred Children Waiting for a Train is a portrait of the recent history of Chile, a place under a dictatorship and full of inequality. Guided by Alicia Vega, the film’s young protagonists are given the opportunity to explore and design their own films with drawings. Having never before been in a cinema, they discover cinematography, movements, camera angles, film genres, Chaplin, Disney, Lamorisse's red balloon and the train of the Lumière Brothers. In this documentary, Ignacio Agüero makes visible what CCC stands for. A place where cinema is the center of dialogue, creation and community, that supports new filmmakers everyday through workshops, screenings and talks, in which we seek to democratize cinema and access to culture. – Dominga Sotomayor & Ignacio Ocampo of CCC
CCC is a non-profit organization spreading culture through cinema and intersecting disciplines, encouraging dialogue between local and international arts and neighborhood communities. The Center is located in Raulí 571 in the heart of downtown Santiago. A big, old house that was restored, it includes a 30 seat cinema and an openair area for screenings, premieres, and collaborations with festivals. The house also has offices and spaces dedicated to creation and training, workshops and seminars; a gallery, and a coffee/bar meeting point. We are interested in having a positive impact on the city of Santiago and the local environment, promoting the democratization of networks by converging worlds that don’t usually cross in our country.
CINEMA ARTA selects
Cinema, Mon Amour
Alexandru Belc, Romania/Czech Republic 2015, 70 min.
Cinema, Mon Amour follows the story of Victor Purice and his team in their everyday fight to preserve a cinema in Piatra Neamț (Romania). He dreams of restoring the glory days, yet struggles to keep up with the harsh new reality. In a theater that lacks heating and is slowly falling apart but which receives no support from the state who own the place, the fight is almost like Don Quixote’s. In a way, this is also the story of Cinema ARTA in Cluj-Napoca, which was renovated and reactivated without any public support. Both are stories with a happy ending, ones that show the power of a group of dedicated and enthusiastic people who follow their dream and bring about positive change in their communities. – Monica Sebestyen of Cinema ARTA
Cinema ARTA is an independent arthouse cinema in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The cinema, opened in 1913, is one of the oldest in the region. It is a cultural hub focusing on audio-visual content, a catalyst for the independent and creative sector that aims to create cultural experiences which unite, inspire and become meaningful for those attending the events. Its mission is to promote cultural values, tolerance and diversity by showcasing and encouraging interaction between various forms of art and people.
