Part journal, part remix of found footage Cinépata is a hybrid text where Alberto Fuguet talks about the films, the directors and the actors with which he grew up, as well as the neighborhood, the plazas, the old theater houses that were demolished or frozen in time, and the people as if they were, and in many ways they are, characters on a huge real set. For better or for worse, "cinépata" comes from the juxtaposition of the words "cinema" and "sociopath".
; neighborhoods , plazas, or demolished rooms frozen in time and people , as if they were , and in some ways they are, characters of a huge real set. Cinépata better or for worse , has been put together with movie psycho.
" The movie is not available , which is not shared , is that there is no damage or pond or within one, but certainly one of the great moments for a cinephile , lonely or shy by it , is to comment and somehow , check that the film was not affected so much but there is a dream . So a cinephile 's so happy when he meets another movie buff and can talk , and that's why the film fails to fascinate both and becomes harmful or unsatisfactory even when you have no one to share Seen " Cinépata (such as the producer and . the website) collects prints leaving the theater , reflections on cinephilia , criticism and festivals , autobiographical narratives , fictional and essayistic nature , fragments of script , story or stories, film clips , phrases like frames , the influence of motion picture writers like Manuel Puig and Cabrera Infante and permanent celebration of the act of seeing and doing and breathe cinema.
