A New school for a New cinema: Learning and Teaching through Films in Brazilian Schools

Cinema that educates. Education that films. The cinema taken to the school or the school that brings the cinema? The intent of the research is not to characterise a single form of learning or a specific type of school. We start from the idea that cinema and school do not separate, apart from there being an exchange of knowledge between them. Dialogue between school and cinema where the cinema is not only the dark room and school is not just a teacher as the only source of knowledge. Thus, we present the results of a workshop applied in Brazilian schools, showing how cinema can be a potential for education.
