THE PEDAGOGY OF CINEMA
The power of motion pictures to effect change in society is not nurtured by the traditional methods of consumption.   Instead, its true power of consciousness raising is inherent in the method of production.  
According to Paulo Freire, the author of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, there are two basic methods of teaching or pedagogy.  One designed by the teacher for the student, in which it is assumed that the teacher has knowledge and the student is without knowledge.  The alternative is a dialogical teaching method, with the area for study delineated in an interaction between teacher and student.  The goal of this method is to perceive the processes, which create reality and the place of the participants in those processes.  
It is my belief that filmmakers must be sensitive to the needs of culture and the community in order to produce films that are socially and culturally functional, and support the liberating growth and psychological development.  Social change is a result of a process of critical analysis.  The filmmaking process must be forged with the struggle of the oppressed for liberation.
The challenge for filmmakers of the future is to find a way to bring about the involvement of oppressed people in the production process of the filmmaking experience. In the new millennium, filmmakers must come to know that the liberating power of film to change social consciousness is not in how a film is watched, but how it is created.
