Cineparallax for independence does not mean being only a niche product, a company far from the logic of the so-called majors. It means do not meet the standards of TV conformists. Develop cinematographic languages that create an alternative vision of reality. For Cineparallax authentic cinema should not legitimize the mindset of a ruling system, the power of fashion: it must create "visions" and awaken the imagination of the audience.
