Filmmaking in Brazil started in the early 20th century and it took a substantial amount of time and resources in terms of money and time before establishing itself as a legitimate form of entertainment for the local citizens. This industry has gone through upheavals as a depiction of the manner in which it relied heavily on state funding and other initiatives.

This movement received the attention of prominent personalities including military strategists, religious practitioners like priests and educationists (Perrin 16).
