Cinema with Values

"Man is a narrator. From childhood we are hungry for stories as we are hungry for food. Whether in the form of stories, novels, movies, songs, news ..., stories influence our lives, although not Let us be aware of this. We often decide what is right or wrong to do based on the characters and stories we have assimilated. Stories teach us; they shape our convictions and behaviors; they can help us understand and say who we are. "

Francisco in the message for the World Communications Day 2020
