Overview of the theme of the conference
The cinematographic art may seem far from caring directly and in the theory of what is marginalized and what is not, however, this remains the core of its creative action. Its cultural and aesthetic choices have always been guided by a position that is at any time for or against
Many cinematographic attempts were made possible only through this choice responding to the concern of the threat of identity, a culture, a system, people, a memory of an ethnic group or latitude.
It is from this concern that cinematic experiences have emerged in connection with ethnic groups like Indians, Kurds, the Amazigh, Palestinians and Eskimos
