The study reveals the pedagogical affordance of cinema in the learning of epistemological reflection. The discursive data were analyzed by using the non-supervised clustering method bisecting k-means, which interpretation proceeded to the location of the phrases on their significant contexts. It is concluded that the pedagogical use of the cinema allows: 1) a better understanding of epistemological and methodological concepts; 2) involving the learner with the self-correction of doubts from his/her everyday perception, 3) boosting the construction of significant conceptualizations; 4) personalizing abstractions underlying epistemological thinking; 5) promoting the construction of linguistic devices that serve as arguments in decisions related to the development of research.
