Shouldn’t Culture benefit from a sovereign ministry?

If culture depended on being a sovereign ministry, the question of artistic independence would arise, but culture must shake up, disturb, question… It opens up spaces, it cannot in any case depend on a sovereign ministry, whatever society may be. .

Is cinema necessarily a political art? What inspires you about the recovery that can be done around a work, such as “Bac Nord” recently?

We can say that all artistic creation is political. Creation is and will always be a matter of debate and conflict.

Do cinema and series have, among other things, the vocation, in your opinion, of helping to “move the lines” on societal issues (parity, diversity, etc.)?

Cinema and series can move the lines if they come out of themselves. Everyone is fed up with the series but the series that the different platforms offer us are essentially American series with always the same point of view. The series is a large-scale consumer product. Cinema and series are not meant to be, but can make it possible to move the lines, this is particularly true for documentaries (too little promoted, even non-existent on the platforms, we have seen that the documentary by David Dufresne, A country that keeps itself wise, allowed to discuss the violence of repression…)
