After a dispute over Polanski – the leadership of the César Academy resigns – culture

-

A bang: in the debate about the new Polanski film, the executive board of the César Academy draws a line.

Finally calm again: This is what the executive board of the French César academy hopes for with a radical step – the collective resignation. This was announced by the César leadership yesterday Thursday evening.

Controversial Polanski nomination

The background to the decision is the nomination of controversial filmmaker Roman Polanski.

The academy had recently come under fire because it nominated the drama “J’accuse” by filmmaker Polanski, who was accused of rape, in twelve categories – including the best film and the award for best director. Polanski leads the nominations for the César film award.

400 filmmakers called for reform

Shortly before the film was released last November, a previous model had accused Polanski of raping her in 1975. The filmmaker denies the allegation. Women’s rights activists therefore called for the film to be dropped.

On Monday, around 400 filmmakers in a statement published in the Le Monde newspaper called for a “far-reaching reform” of the César Academy. Among other things, they accused the institution of lack of transparency.

So now a radical conclusion: In order to honor the filmmakers of 2019 and to let them rest again, the management has decided to take this step, they write in their message.
