In Cannes, Greta Gerwig comments on the #MeToo movement: “It’s a good thing”

The principal Greta Gerwig responsible for the resounding success of “Barbie “, he said in Cannes Festival this Tuesday (14) that the #MeToo movement led to “substantial changes” that improved the film industry. According to the director, the conversation should continue to expand.

The global #MeToo movement, which has exposed men accused of sexual harassment in sectors such as entertainment, politics and business, is in focus at the festival that began on Tuesday (14). One of the reasons is speculation about potentially explosive accusations against a series of actors and directors that could be revealed during the festival.

“People in the film community telling their stories and trying to change things for the better can only be a good thing,” said Gerwig, who is this year's jury president for the event.

“I've seen substantial changes in the American film community and I think it's important that we continue to expand that conversation,” Gerwig said.

“It's part of creating a safe environment, the same way you would if two people, you know, were going to fight with swords,” Gerwig said of intimacy directors, or coordinators, who help choreograph television and film scenes involving sex or nudity and ensuring that actors are not exploited or made to feel uncomfortable.

French actor and also member of the jury, Omar Sy agreed that it is a good sign that women are increasingly courageous to speak out and that the movement is gaining strength.
