The Good Cinema

A Catholic school, a troubled political moment and a group of transgressive filmmakers.The feature film The Good Cinema crosses these three elements to tell the story of the emergence of the Cinema Marginal, also known as Post-Cinema Novo, Cinema of Invention or Brazilian Experimental Cinema.The film leads the audience through the creation of the first film school in São Paulo, through the perspective of one of its students, director Carlos Reichenbach. Through connections that mix Reichenbach’s memory, his early films, Rogério Sganzerla’s ideas and the production of Boca do Lixo in the late 1960s, The Good Cinema helps us to have the dimension of quite opposing views on the cinematic art, proposing the appreciation of Brazilian cinema and the autonomy of artistic creation.
