Alea, TG. The Viewer’s Dialectic. re popular

Popular ought not to respond only to immediate interests (expressed in the need to enjoy oneself, to play, to abandon oneself to the moment, to elude…) but also to basic needs and to the final objective: transforming reality and bettering humankind. Therefore, when I speak about popular film, I am not referring to a cinema which is simply accepted by the community, but rather to a cinema which also expresses the people’s most profound and authentic interest6s and responds to these interests. Tomás Gutiérrez Alea
