Summary
In this film from Chile a small group of poor children discover a larger reality, and a different world, through the cinema. Each Saturday Professor Alicia Vega turns the Chapel of Lo Hermida, one of Santiago's poorest slums, into a film projection room as she conducts a workshop for children under the auspices of the Catholic Church. The film shows the lives of the students, their homes and families and the work they do to survive. Most of the children have never been to the movies before, and in the workshop they see and learn about them, as well as watch short films such as Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney, The Red Balloon by Lamorisse and the Lumière Brothers 1895 film The Arrival of the Train to the station. In the end each child designs a film with drawings, and then they all go to the cinema for the first time in their lives, to a big modern movie theater in downtown Santiago
