On October 30, 2021, a masterclass took place with a leading figure in contemporary auteur film, Mexican director Carlos Reygadas, who explained his creative method to FAMU students. The meeting was attended by several dozen people.
"When you just observe, when you just feel what you see, when you feel the colour, feel the smell of everything, when you are just present, everything will just accumulate. Cinema is all about observation. You have to observe with your eyes, with your ears. The capacity of improvising, which comes from disposition to observe and listen, will always be there and will be the most acute, the most powerful, when you have a good plan. Why are we making cinema as an imitation, when we can make it as an authentic representation."
