Aïssa Maïga Interview
She is of the assertion that black female actors are not and should not be reduced to the color of their skin, absolutely because in France today despite the fact that our country is very diverse in terms of ethnicity, French cinema is mostly white.
There’s an organization that is called uniforms which is specialized in the export of French cinema yes and the director Isabel Giordano told me that the film’s that really work in terms of expert are the films with a lot of diversity yes so the entire world has no problem with the French cinema being a cinema of diversity it’s within the country itself. There’s a lot of resistance!
I think that the way history is taught, the heritage of French cinema, the fact that most people in the industry who make films, who financed films are white maybe this is you know part of the reasons why the French cinema is so white and I mean not all people are racist.
The differences are huge in France we’re very afraid of having these terms of policy of quartet quarters and I don’t have the solution but I think that we should all sit at the same table and start a real discussion because it’s kind of very urgent to give a solution because the young people here in France today who come from diversity never see themselves in the screens.
They don’t exist! they have no value that is valuable so I think it’s a very negative process for them and that today the responsibility of people in the industry yes and also of people who make policy to make very important decisions
The first thing is that we have to admit that we are one country yes and that we have to include all the differences within the country because if you give people the feeling that they don’t belong to the country you’re losing some strength.
