With a dozen Brazilian films presented at the Berlin festival, a record number of 143 Brazilian feature films distributed in 2016, and local productions at the top of the box office, the cinema is experiencing an upturn in Brazil. That is what inform us Paulo Paranagua, at his blog at the prestigious Le Monde (Paris).
Despite the recession, the attendance of cinemas is increasing, with more than 184 million admissions in 2016 (not much, for a country with 207 million inhabitants). The network of cinemas is also growing, although it remains modest compared to the population: with 3,168 houses, Brazilians have proportionally fewer rooms than Argentines or Mexicans.
