ROUND TABLE : DEFENCE OF CREATION – STATE OF EMERGENCY ?
DEFENCE OF CREATION : STATE OF EMERGENCY ?
Round table accessible only to French speakers
The balance of the French cinema model has always been measured by the strength of mobilisation of its profession. Judging by the involvement of independent unions, authors’ associations, professional organisations and the launch in the autumn of the Estates General of the Cinema, the situation is alarming. What is the situation, as Pier Paolo Pasolini put it, at a time when content is being promoted at the expense of works? How can cinematographic creation resist the norms that aim to take control of the spectators’ desire? Never has the feeling of a state of emergency been so sensitive since the battles for cultural exception. What forms do the struggles to continue to create outside the imposed formats take?
