During the sixth edition of the International Film Festival in Los Cabos 2017, a well-deserved tribute was paid to the director and screenwriter PAUL SCHRADER, who with great joy emphasized the great differences that exist in the current and the old cinema, without underestimating and in a very objective way the cinematographic director mentioned before the media, the ease with which cinema can be made in these times, with the full support of technology and the new requirements to shoot a film, there are no rules and all they can do it … he also affirm that it is “wrong” to generalize the Hollywood industry, since today, you can enjoy films that do not belong to that industry, and even the study systems that previously financed Universal, 20ht Century Fox, Warner among others, now invest with Netflix, Apple, Google and Amazon, being the film production of this moment and the most searched.

Through the festival two films of his most symbolic works were programmed, such as Mishima, a very radical creation for the American director, and First Reformed, a very personal work that has been presented at the last Mostra of Venice, a film with reflection on the care of the environment; of which Paul Schrader added – “it’s too late, no one listens, they are not interested … it’s what one gives to the grandchildren”, with these words he conclude to continue enjoying the fabulous tribute that the International Film Festival prepared him, happy and proud to be the only film director to receive such recognition.
