Tous ces mythes font partie du «roman national»: sorte de système historique qui commence à se développer à la fin du XIXe siècle et qui consiste à faire de l’histoire officielle et enseignée un récit plus ou moins fantasmé, tout dédié à susciter l’amour de la patrie.

On Saturday night, on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, 82 women intend to make a dramatic statement about how difficult it is to ascend professionally in the film industry.
The group— planned to include actresses like Kristen Stewart, Jane Fonda, Marion Cotillard, and Salma Hayek, directors such as Patty Jenkins, Ava DuVernay, and Haifaa Al Mansour, agents like CAA’s Hylda Queally and Maha Dakhil, and other cinema professionals such as Telluride Film Festival programmer Julie Huntsinger, and journalist Melissa Silverstein—will climb the steps that lead to the festival’s Théâtre Debussy, pause and stand motionless and silent facing the Palais. The intention, organizers say, is to express how hard it still is to climb the social and professional ladder as woman in the film industry.
Among the women, Cate Blanchett and Agnès Varda will read a statement. The number of participants is deliberate. The full list of women who plan to stand Saturday night follows below.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Casting as Amputee in ‘Stronger’ Criticized. “Stronger,” a film based on the story of Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs during the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, is being criticized for its casting of Jake Gyllenhaal as Bauman, a double amputee.
In an interview with Boston.com, David Gordon Green, the film’s director, said he never considered anyone other than Gyllenhaal to play Bauman, noting, “I knew he was going to be a playful actor that was able to break some rules of acting and go with me on a journey that was going to be both emotional and ultimately uplifting.”
But groups like The Ruderman Family Foundation say Gyllenhaal’s casting takes opportunities away from actors with disabilities. “The casting of Jake Gyllenhaal as the lead in the movie Stronger is the perfect example [of] Hollywood’s ongoing systemic discrimination against actors with disabilities.” Jennifer Lawrence Is A Prisoner Of Her Cool Girl Image.

Why museum professionals need to talk about Black Panther – The Hopkins Exhib... By Casey Haughin, ’19 The seminal film Black Panther has become an international sensation in the week following its release.
Notable for its impeccable dialogue, witty banter, and nearly all POC cast, Black Panther provides a platform to discuss a multitude of topics on a national scale. With issues such as police brutality, the ever-present effects of slavery in Western society, and black identity approached in the film, it is easy to gloss over one of the more exposition-driven scenes of the film that engages with the complicated relationship between museums and audiences affected by colonialism. Killmonger, the half-Wakandan who aims to take the throne to avenge his father and liberate the black world using vibranium technology, is introduced in the film as an adult while surveying the collection of East African artifacts in a fictional British museum.
Clearly, this is referencing the British Museum, but uses the facade of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta for the exterior. Parsing Oscar Ballot, Publicist Loves Phantom Thread, Not Darkest Hour. Here’s another in our series of interviews with a swath of Academy voters from different branches for their candid thoughts on what got picked, overlooked, and overvalued this year.
Best Motion Picture of the Year “Phantom Thread” being nominated was a surprise; it wasn’t predicted as being nominated by anyone. Its wide critical acclaim came too late to be immediately absorbed. So its nomination was due to strong word of mouth and the strength of the reviews that made people want to see it. 3 Billboards : erreur sur la marchandise. Hugh Jackman's role as P.T.

This week, the Christopher Nolan-directed epic “Dunkirk” was nominated for 8 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Production Design.
However, prison labor advocates say that “Dunkirk” should be disqualified from receiving any Oscars due to its use of prison labor in constructing sets in France during production in 2016. In the official “Dunkirk” companion book “Dunkirk: The History Behind the Major Motion Picture” by Josh Levine, set decorator Gary Fettis bragged that the use of prison labor in set construction saved the film money.
