Entertainment 19 August, 2017


With his straight-talking as usual, the director of Polisse is returned to the place of women in the world of film, confident that she has never experienced sexism.

A film should not be judged because of the sex of its author. It is the opinion of Maïwenn, director, wreathed in a huge success after it received the Jury prize at the 2011 Cannes film Festival for her film Polisse. What, then, had blasted the behaviour of some actors in the film, the artist is accustomed to speak without a tongue of wood, and told Madame Figaro that she was ” anti-feminist movement “.

The one who shared the life of Luc Besson is explained seamlessly, admitting to having found “absurd the recurring debatearound the lack of female directors in competition at the Cannes Festival” . According to it, there are simply less women than men behind the camera.I’ve never been confronted with financial who did not want to produce my film on the pretext that I was a woman, “said the star who has faced the throes of triumph.

Maïwenn has never experienced sexism on the part of producers and hope to continue to be selected at the Cannes film Festival only on the basis of the quality of his works. Since Polisse, the director came to present My king on the red carpet in cannes in 2015, alongside Emmanuelle Bercot and Vincent Cassel.
