A conversation with Nina Shaw, Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche, and Claire Diao. Moderated by Kamilah Forbes
Hollywood has long been criticized for its lack of inclusion of filmmakers, actors, and professionals from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Initiatives to tackle this issue have emerged following the #OscarsSoWhite polemic.
Conversely, one might wonder whether the French film industry, which has a strong tradition of supporting African, Middle-Eastern, Asian and Latino-American cinema, accurately reflects the cultural diversity within its own borders.
Panelists Nina Shaw, Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche, and Claire Diao consider how the complex and diverging histories of each country have impacted their respective film industries. Moderated by Kamilah Forbes.
