Cinema and Theatre
The graduation projects for this year were the product of studies that took place in the fall with the first part of the project, and focused on building bridges to multiple issues related to our society and influenced their lives either remotely or from soon.
In cinema, theatre and puppets, this has contributed to providing a complete visual vision of this. By encouraging students to think critically about their understanding of the dramatic text in the narration they choose, and to work with the way to communicate to interpret texts and convert them to creative production, all projects have reflected a form of human expression that has taken shape through social, economic, moral, artistic, and technological divisions.
Students were able to apply the research skills they acquired through the years of University study, and graduation projects provided a great opportunity to explain the world of drama, either in cinematic or theatrical adaptation and to compel this adaptation and discipline to express and explore the problems, hopes and dreams of our human societies.
