This article aims to analyze four short films developed by students of a private school in Ribeirao Preto, a city located in the state of São Paulo, in 2010.

From these bases and supported the desire for civic education, the authors of this article proposes a reading of short films produced by students, knowing that carry the world in their own way. Finally, we point out that we agree with the filmmaker Walter Salles when he says: the role of cinema is to generate a memory of ourselves..
