ARAGON, Rogelio. Divertimento around Freemasonry in the cinema. REHMLAC [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.2, pp.26-56. ISSN 1659-4223.

Despite not always having a lead role, Freemasonry has appeared many times on the big screen. Sometimes we see it in the form of a cameo, sometimes as an Easter egg, but Hollywood has capitalized on the interest and curiosity that this organization generates in the public and in order to improve the building of its characters or complement the stories told in its films. In this fast-paced journey, we will discover some of the representations of Freemasonry and Freemasons that have appeared in recent cinema, as well as the motifs -open or hidden-that justify their presence on the screen.

Keywords : Social representations; cinematography; conspiracy theories; visual arts; symbology.
