May the Mexican movies be golden again… Morelia Film festival 2017
“Movies are a world of fragments”. Phrase of jean-Luc Godard, famous filmmaker and movies critic of French-Swiss origin.
How right is Jean-Luc, movies are a magical world made of fragments, of all those moments that give life to a history, whatever the genre, but which at the end give out a marvelous result when you see all these fragments reunited.
Film is a very renowned art in many places, unfortunately not with the boom we would like in our country; there has been indeed a “Golden Age of Film in Mexico” from 1935 and almost 1960. However, after that it has been rather complicated to reach that financial success of movies again. In the history of films in Mexico several characters have outstood, giving a high name to the country, relentlessly pursuing that success motivated by love to this art that is film.
To mention just a few of the most renowned and current filmmakers, we find names such as Arturo Ripstein, Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Arau, Diego Luna and the recently winner of the Oscar as Best Director Alejandro González Iñarritu.
And talking about people who have left a trace in film in Mexico, we can highlight Daniela Michel, who since 2003 has been one of the main responsible of the organization of the famous Morelia International Film Festival. Daniela, the current director of this event, has the firm conviction of promoting the new movie talents in Mexico and at the same time increasing the cinematographic offer for Mexican and international audience and reaching again the name Mexican film industry had in yesteryears.
In a direct manner this event also contributes to the promotion of culture and tourism in Michoacán thanks to the hundreds of people who travel from different parts of the country and from abroad to attend the festival.
