COSSALTER, Javier. From the center to the periphery. The national film schools, the short films’ ruptures and the new forms of representation of the popular sectors in the transition from classical to modern cinema. Folia [online]. 2018, n.32, pp.7-33. ISSN 0325-8238.

The article addresses the problems of film schools in national universities and short films as fundamental agents in the transition from classical cinema to modern cinema, and in the subsequent establishment of the latter. From the historical development of the five fundamental schools of the period, some shared features that were erected as novelties can be observed alternative ways of conceiving cinema, the decentralization of production and geographical opening, professional training and collective socio-political commitment. Then, through the filmic analysis of two groups of short films made within these entities, the modern character of these works can be seen in two primordial aspects: aesthetic experimentation and self-reflection of the expressive medium on the one hand, and the adoption of a critical approach in the representation of the subaltern sectors, on the other; qualities that, thanks to the structural potentialities of the short film, break with the transparency of the narration and the relativist or populist point of view, central characteristics of the classical canon within Argentine cinema.

Palabras clave : Film schools; Short film; Modern cinema; Popular sectors.
