How Does Non Reporting Probation Work?

The social role of cinema

A text of 1938 random rays found in the library of François Truffaut film.

"Through the extraordinary spread of the moving image, became a universal language, movies today have in all places an undeniable influence. He has, in many countries, not only caused movements of opinion, but changed the manners, the guide up, good or bad, a kind of fascinating suggestion. Does it not part of the lifestyle, habits of all people? It only serves not their common knowledge? Do them together does not better than any other progress? It was said that with him came true in a sense unexpected speech of the ancients, bread and amusements. The film is a kind of bread we want social, ie civilization par excellence. As

thing of all and probably the best understood, playing a role of universality as ever but could not make any other acquisition of science and thought the film was of interest to the intelligent youth, eager to learn and willing to ascertain the present and future possibilities of the screen. Consequently, it should not not identify and locate the social function of cinema, to indicate the useful and beneficial applications, the move towards a noble mission, to finally identify the errors that the discrediting sometimes prevented him from accomplishing this mission ?

is what, not without merit of originality in the selection of the thesis and the value of its literature, has devoted a young Mr Braun-Andre Larrieu, a graduate of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes Sociales . These pages are timely for the rehabilitation of the film too used for other purposes without significance that a vulgar trade, diverted from its true purpose, if the service little worthy destinations. It is important to investigate the extraordinary power of the educational and social image, bringing the intentions of his departure, which are those of the great inventor. Like all great scientists, Louis Lumiere was thinking only of the course by the lovely and he imagined point rule and the supremacy of the imagination, not to mention the unfortunate abuses under the pretext of shows more or less objectionable .

In good faith, and without success, it was believed to share the intellectual by making the display of masterpieces of literature was in vain to contact the media warned without reaching the media popular. This relative failure, the result was another error productions banal, insipid, if not call them dangerous. We do not distribute the bread of the spirit, but the laughter, the image remained on the plane of relaxation, nothing more. A reversal seems to take place, which welcomes everyone. Without abandoning its recreational character, without sacrificing the fun, although we still like the quality, the film seems to focus on general education, for a humane education. There, even the screen, a comforting return to humanism, this time expanded to all minds and not for the elite. "
