Mythical Cinemas: The Cinema of the End of the World
Joël Farges / FR, 2016 / 52 min.
This documentary series takes viewers to mythical cinemas around the world. Every one has unmistakeably left its mark on its country and cinema’s history. In this episode, the cinema in Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of Chile.
At the southernmost tip of Chile’s Tierra del Fuego, in a pioneer’s village in Porvenir, stands a cinema founded by two adventurers; one Croation, one German. In 1902 they wondered how they were going to spend their winters in the dry, desolate area. “What about opening a cinema?” they said to one another.
