We have no right to speak in the name of others without legitimacy. Africa, for example, often serves as a backdrop in movies. Yet we see nothing of Africa, we don’t understand its problems. I think that we must get accustomed, and accustom our audiences, to other viewpoints. To adopt this stance, we must understand their problems, put ourselves in their shoes and, with certain humility, give them a voice. The cinema should be conceived in that way. Otherwise it remains a power trip. It is just a question of being ethically and politically sound.

The first thing that jumped out at me while going through the S&A news feed this morning were all the polarizing reviews for Lee Daniels' The Paperboy, which screened at the Cannes Film Festival today, while half of the world was still asleep.

Here's an update on a project Emmanuel profiled last fall titled Désordres (Chaos), which stars Isaach de Bankole and  French-Rwandan actress Sonia Rolland, as history professor Vincent, and his wife Marie who have just moved from Paris (with their son) into a farm near a small town in the south of France, looking forward to a quieter life, some kind of return to nature. Marie, a renowned international pianist, who retired in spite of her young age, has decided to follow her husband, but almost unwillingly. From the very beginning, Thibaut, one of Vincent’s students (played by Niels Schneider), disrupts this family getaway, and slowly, the couple starts to come apart. But Thibaut’s intentions are not at all motivated by love. And he'll do anything to achieve his goal.
