In a special joint edition of arts24 and The 51 Percent, we focus on whether the #MeToo movement has reached an inflection point in French cinema. The film sector in France has been shaken after actress, Judith Godrèche, accused director, Benoît Jacquot, of rape and sexual abuse during their relationship; which, she says, started when she was 14 years old and he was 39. Annette Young and Olivia Salazar-Winspear are joined by French talent agent, Solène Edouard and Ariane Labed, actor and director, to discuss why the industry has been so seemingly complacent to address issues of harassment and sexism.
