  • Defying the gaze of others in Abu Bakr Shawky’s Yomeddine |
    Adham Youssef
    June 1, 2018


    After finishing my interview with director Abu Bakr Shawky and producer Dina Emam at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, I move to my next scheduled meeting — a group discussion with a Kenyan director about her film, which is screening in the Un Certain Regard competition. Shawky is conducting an interview with a foreign journalist nearby, and I can’t help but overhear their conversation. The reporter asks him about the “political and religious messages” behind his debut feature and Palme d’Or contender, Yomeddine (2018).

    Later, when I meet with Shawky again, I ask him to comment on that question. “Wherever there is a good story I will go,” he says. “There is an expectation from Middle Eastern films that they have to be about politics and religion, but I don’t want to do that anymore. Not because they are irrelevant, but I watch films from the United States, Europe and Asia that are not political, and I like them. So why can’t a Middle Eastern film not be political in the traditional sense and still be considered enjoyable and significant?”

    There were three other Arabic-language films in Cannes this year; Nadine Labaki’s Cafarnaüm (2018), a Lebanese drama about poor children and migrants in the informal housing areas of Beirut; Gaya Jiji’s My Favourite Fabric (2018), a film that tackles female sexuality and the Syrian revolution (guaranteed to be a hit with Western audiences); and Sofia, Meryem BenMbarek’s story about premarital pregnancy in Morocco. Yomeddine stood out among them as a different narrative that is placed within a specific context, yet is universally appealing and relatable nonetheless.

    Building VOD Apps with React NativePhoto by Pietro Jeng on UnsplashA deliberate mixture of metals and other elements makes stronger and/or more versatile metals…When your company provides video streaming technology to global entertainment brands like Festival De Cannes and SXSW it’s crucial for software developers to operate with unified source code and workflows, and to do so in the most platform-agnostic way possible.This is the challenge faced by the R&D team at SHIFT72, as we develop video streaming apps for a growing list of global entertainment brands like the ones mentioned above.

  • Le Guardian, jaloux du rôle pionnier du Monde dans ce domaine, a enfin trouvé quelqu’un du cinéma pour porter le flambeau anti-#Metoo. Un qui a trouvé en plus super malin de dénoncer ça sur le thème de la « chasse aux sorcières »…

    Michael Haneke : #MeToo has led to a witch hunt ’coloured by a hatred of men’

    Michael Haneke has become the latest figure to criticise the #MeToo movement against sexual assault and harassment in the film industry, arguing that it has instigated a “witch hunt” that “should be left in the Middle Ages”.

    The Austrian film-maker, two-time winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, made his concerns known during an interview with Austrian newspaper Kurier, later reported by Deadline. “This new puritanism coloured by a hatred of men, arriving on the heels of the #MeToo movement, worries me,” he said. “As artists, we’re starting to be fearful since we’re faced with this crusade against any form of eroticism.”

    While Haneke noted that any act of “rape or coercion” should be punishable, he said that “this hysterical pre-judgment which is spreading now, I find absolutely disgusting. And I don’t want to know how many of these accusations related to incidents 20 or 30 years ago are primarily statements that have little to do with sexual assault.

    “This has nothing to do with the fact that every sexual assault and all violence – whether against women or men – should be condemned and punished. But the witch hunt should be left in the Middle Ages,” he added.

    • Le Guardian se réfère donc à cet article de « Deadline » (des fois que tu connaisses) : Michael Haneke On MeToo : “Witch Hunt Should Be Left To The Middle Ages”

      Oscar and double Palme d’Or winner Michael Haneke has become the latest prominent European artist to lament what he calls a “witch hunt” in the wake of the #MeToo movement. Speaking with Kurier, the Austrian filmmaker said there is no question that “any form of rape or coercion is punishable… But this hysterical pre-judgment which is spreading now, I find absolutely disgusting. And I don’t want to know how many of these accusations related to incidents 20 or 30 years ago are primarily statements that have little to do with sexual assault.”

    • Lequel Deadline tire ses citations d’une interview autrichienne de « Kurier » : Michael Haneke : "Hexenjagd im Mittelalter belassen"

      Glauben Sie nicht, dass es neuerdings eine Tendenz gibt, Tabus wiederaufzubauen, etwa in der Folge der #MeToo-Debatte?

      Oh Gott, fragen Sie mich nicht danach. Als Mann sollte man zu diesem Thema ja kaum mehr etwas sagen. Natürlich finde ich, dass jede Form von Vergewaltigung oder Nötigung zu ahnden ist. Das ist ja gar keine Frage! Aber diese Vorverurteilungshysterie, die jetzt um sich greift, finde ich absolut degoutant. Und ich möchte nicht wissen, wie viele dieser Anklagen, die sich auf Vorfälle vor 20 oder 30 Jahren beziehen, in erster Linie Abrechnungen sind, die mit sexuellen Übergriffen nur wenig zu tun haben.

    • Il y connaît rien en sorcières Haneke. La chasse aux sorcières c’était à la renaissance et pendant le Maccarthysme.
      Ca m’étonne pas de lui.
      Cette confusion entre érotisme et harcelement sexuel est typique de la culture du viol. Ces derniers jours j’ai fait lire à Amélie pas mal de textes sur la littérature libertine du XVIIIeme d’un point de vue féministe : comme par exemple celui ci https://imaristo.hypotheses.org/166

      Cette littérature se caractérise par

      un monde où la gloire des hommes s’acquiert par la conquête des femmes, et où les femmes ne sont jamais que des proies[3] au service de ce jeu faussé de la séduction.

  • Wikileaks Attorneys Blast Citizenfour Maker Poitras

    We find it hard to comprehend why Poitras, who played an important role in national security journalism, has chosen to allow a dubious quest for self-discovery to undermine people working courageously to protect press freedoms.

    Risk might win attention for Poitras by pandering to tabloid narratives about its subjects, but it has done a great disservice to her fellow documentarians, and has profoundly betrayed her friends, her colleagues and her journalistic integrity.

    • The reason for the shift seems to be contained in the newly added voiceover, in which Poitras divulges that she was involved in an intimate relationship with one of the film’s primary subjects, award-winning journalist Jacob Appelbaum.

      Appelbaum appears prominently in Poitras’ Citizenfour as well as in Risk. Although he does not work for WikiLeaks, Poitras conflates WikiLeaks with the organization he did work for, Tor, and makes him a central focus of the current version of Risk.

      The Cannes premiere of Risk portrayed Appelbaum in a flattering light and Poitras did not disclose the nature of their relationship at that time. Now Poitras states, “I thought I could ignore the contradictions. I thought they were not part of the story. I was so wrong. They’re becoming the story.” But if sexism is becoming the story, it is because Poitras has chosen to focus on it.

      Poitras was criticized after Cannes for appearing to be overly sympathetic to WikiLeaks. Instead of providing us with a more objective portrayal of her subject matter, she has re-framed her story to turn Risk into a film by Laura Poitras about Laura Poitras; a rather late coming-of-age story about the filmmaker discovering that there is sexism in her social and professional circles.

      Instead of a documentary about the abuse of state power and WikiLeaks’ important role in exposing it, the emphasis of the film is now to highlight hotly disputed claims about an ex-boyfriend.

      Et encore autour du Jacob…

  • State Misogyny: France’s Colonial Unveiling History Against Muslim Women | THE FUNAMBULIST MAGAZINE

    A few days ago, Mayor of Cannes David Lisnard promulgated a formal ban on full-body swimsuits worn by some Muslim women on the city’s beaches — these swimsuits are oddly designated as “burkini” when the apparel seems to be a beach equivalent of the chador, not of the burka. The ban stipulates “Access to beaches and for swimming is banned to any person wearing improper clothes that are not respectful of good morals and secularism.” This sentencing regulates the amount of epidermic surface that should be exposed, while strongly recalling phrasing we usually encounter that fixes the amount of epidermic surface that should not be exposed, proving if need be that these two unjunctions although seemingly opposed are, in fact, the same. As it was already the case for the 2010 French legislation forbidding anyone to have their face dissimulated in public space (see past article), explicitly drafted against Muslim women wearing the burka or the niqab, we could insist on the demagogic dimension of such laws, targeting a significantly small amount of persons to engineer an electoral spectacle. Then again, we should also examine them for their deeper signification and what they reveal about the way the French society is still operating on its colonial bases. It would be indeed a mistake to read this recent municipal ban through the spectrum of a recent European “resurgence” of discriminatory policies, some of which have to do with the over-mediatization of the few dozens of thousands of migrants and refugees whose bodies have been used as a recurrent televisual material for the last recent months, some others with the ongoing State of Emergency in France (one of the reasons invoked by the Mayor). When it comes to French islamophobic and racist politics, in particular the colonial fetish constructed around the colonized woman’s mode of being and mode of dress, the logics behind them are to be found deeper into history.

    In photos from last Thursday’s amfAR gala at Cannes, it might look like auction host Uma Thurman wasn’t perturbed by the surprise open-mouthed kiss she fielded from “playboy industrialist” and Fiat heir Lapo Elkann. With a gracious smile, she stood for the cameras as he pressed his sweaty face against hers and dangled his lit cigarette dangerously close to her updo.


  • – Ici on dit que le film « Munich : A Palestinian Story » a été déprogrammé à Cannes :

    Mais ici on dit qu’un extrait du film a bien été diffusé et que le film n’est pas encore terminé :

    “They made all this fuss," said Hajjaj. “They called it a film. It’s not a film. It’s a 13-minute industry screening. It’s not even finished yet."


    Nasri Hajjaj défend son film dans cet article et craint que cette campagne médiatique du CRIF ne nuise au financement.

    It is not the first time that the events of Munich have been covered on screen, but Hajjaj says he hopes to offer a different perspective with his interpretation.

    “The Israelis have had since 1976 – when the first film [21 hours at Munich] was made about this – to 2006 when the Spielberg film [Munich] was made to tell their own story. Sometimes very biased, sometimes less biased, but there has never been a film from a Palestinian or Arab perspective."

    “Why do I not have the right to tell this story? I am a party to it, a second party, but a party," said Hajjaj, who grew up in a Lebanese refugee camp with one of the hostage-takers, Afif Hamid, who was killed in the Munich operation.

    “See the film and then judge," he said.

  • Israel lobby fails to block screening of Palestinian film at Cannes | The Electronic Intifada

    A Palestinian work was screened at the Cannes Film Festival’s Marché du Film as planned on Monday, despite an intense campaign by Israel lobby groups to have it canceled.

    Nasri Hajjaj’s Munich: A Palestinian Story was one of four films excerpts of which were screened to industry professionals in collaboration with the Dubai International Film Festival.

    Hajjaj told The Electronic Intifada from Cannes that the screening of a 14-minute segment passed without incident and he received a positive response from those present.

    As The Electronic Intifada reported last week, France’s main pro-Israel lobby group CRIF had been exerting intense pressure on authorities to ban the film, even enlisting the support of the mayor of Cannes.

    CRIF claimed that the film engages in “historical revisionism” about the 1972 raid on the Munich Olympics by the Palestinian group Black September, in which 11 Israeli athletes, a German police officer and five hostage takers died.

    But CRIF could not know this since the unfinished documentary had never been publicly screened.

    Hajjaj said that CRIF and other critics have made a number of false claims about his film, which they have not seen.

    CRIF boss Roger Cukierman even claimed on Twitter that he had been personally assured by Cannes Film Festival president Pierre Lescure that Hajjaj’s film would not be shown.

    • Ronan Farrow: My Father, Woody Allen, and the Danger of Questions Unasked
      Hollywood Reporter | May 11, 2016

      “They’re accusations. They’re not in the headlines. There’s no obligation to mention them.” These were the objections from a producer at my network. It was September 2014 and I was preparing to interview a respected journalist about his new biography of Bill Cosby. The book omitted allegations of rape and sexual abuse against the entertainer, and I intended to focus on that omission. That producer was one of several industry veterans to warn me against it. At the time, there was little more than a stalled lawsuit and several women with stories, all publicly discredited by Cosby’s PR team. There was no criminal conviction. It was old news. It wasn’t news.

      So we compromised: I would raise the allegations, but only in a single question late in the interview. And I called the author, reporter to reporter, to let him know what was coming. He seemed startled when I brought it up. I was the first to ask about it, he said. He paused for a long time, then asked if it was really necessary. On air, he said he’d looked into the allegations and they didn’t check out.

      Today, the number of accusers has risen to 60. The author has apologized. And reporters covering Cosby have been forced to examine decades of omissions, of questions unasked, stories untold. I am one of those reporters - I’m ashamed of that interview.

    • Un peu dommage de paraître relativiser le #harcèlement_sexuel pour mieux mettre en valeur une affaire de viol, mais très juste sur l’hypocrisie du grand coeur médiatique et politicien

      Lundi, c’est la chasse au Baupin, un mec pas trop sympa mais qui n’a violé personne,... et qui est lâché car il lâché son parti, EELV. Mardi, ce sont les cinq minutes de gloire de l’ex « ministre » Batho qui enflamme les médias à propos du présumé coquin de Sapin, alors qu’elle ne sait rien de l’affaire. Mais peu importe : c’est la grande vague, puissante et féconde, de la parole qui se libère. Une page se tourne… Plus rien ne sera comme avant… Respect et considération pour la parole des femmes victimes des agresseurs sexuels.

      Tout ceci est très choux, et j’ai presque failli être convaincu… mais hélas les jités m’ont apporté les images du 69° festival de Cannes, du #Woody_Allen grand penseur du cinéma, glorieux pour présenter son film Café Society, et des journalistes muets pour lui parler d’une affaire d’agression sexuelle qui repose sur des données matérielles bien plus étayées que les dramatiques affaires Baupin et Sapin, et autrement plus grave : #viol sur mineure.

      L’affaire est bien connue. Dylan Farrow, fille adoptive, de Woody Allen, accuse son père de l’avoir abusée quand elle avait sept ans. Elle a désormais le soutien de son frère, Ronan Farrow, fils de Woody Allen et de Mia Farrow. Laquelle Mia avait quitté Woody Allen en découvrant la relation entre Woody et Soon-Yi, sa fille adoptive.


    • #Cannes Susan Sarandon : « Je n’ai rien de bien à dire sur Woody Allen »
      Publié le 15/05/16

      « Je n’ai rien de bien à dire sur Woody Allen, donc je ne pense pas que nous devions aller sur ce terrain », a déclaré l’actrice américaine Susan Sarandon ce dimanche à Cannes, lors d’une table ronde consacrée à la place des femmes dans l’industrie du cinéma.

      Elle était interrogée à propos d’une remarque de Woody Allen qui avait déclaré, au début du festival, qu’il n’avait pas suffisamment de matière pour un film où une femme tomberait amoureuse d’un homme plus jeune qu’elle.
