Description:This documentary deals with the war of images in the era of market globalization. Strengthened by new commercial strategies, Planet Hollywood reinforces its hegemony on screens around the world to the detriment of other cultures. Confronted with Hollywood multinationals who trivialize the film medium by reducing it to mere entertainment, resistance is organizing in an attempt to save what is left of the film medium as a place for artistic expression.
