This has led to an overflow of manufacturing to the detriment of high quality, an unprecedented amount of cash is circulating and it appears we need to seize these useful resource flows reasonably than properly develop the situations and comply with the filming.

We’d not even prefer to see the arrests in Iran with the unjustified imprisonment of three filmmakers responsible solely of exercising their proper to freedom of expression. So we’d not like a number of months in the past the unbelievable sentence of a younger Turkish producer, Çiğdem Mater, together with six different co-defendants, responsible of designing solely a documentary concerning the protests in Gezi Park, a doc by no means made ». The Biennale, because the creative director of the occasion defined, “didn’t fail to make his voice heard in protection of the Ukrainian nation and lots of filmmakers, and can quickly announce the initiatives it should undertake throughout the exhibition.
