In the contemporary societies, the cultural citizen ship is a theme to be faced close to a defense for a better material, environmental, economic and social life quality. Because of that, the right of liberty for creation, information, expression of diversity and others is showed as challenges and foundations for a truly cultural democracy. The present work finds-itself inserted in new practices of citizenship’s studies group, exercised particularly by cultural movements. Our object of research was the movie club 'Mate com Angu', at the Baixada Fluminense, Rio de Janeiro. Through thematic interviews, we tried to check how the five integrants of this group formulate and carry out their proposals of social and esthetic intervention, and how they interact with their community – Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro – using the audiovisual language. The Mate com Angu’s arguments and practices showed that, although the group’s central commitment is in the esthetic field; their activities bring implications in the politic and social fields as well, influencing the Duque de Caxias community’s life and culture. So that, we established that their interventions helped for the concept of citizenship’s enlargement, and particularly for the construction of cultural rights.
