After three days of national mourning following Friday’s tragic attacks in Paris, the cinemas in France have all reopened.
However, many releases have been delayed. This week’s film premieres have also been canceled, including Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, Nanni Moretti’s My Mother, Universal Studio’s Steve Jobs and StudioCanal’s Tom Hardy-starring Legend.
The French Producers Guild (APC) released a statement to pay tribute to the Paris victims, their survivors and everyone who was affected by the events. Read the statement below;
“More than ever, creation is indispensable to allow each and everyone to express their dreams, fears, emotions; and may the desire to live and share be an answer,” said the APC, which represents the bulk of France’s producers.
“Even if we know that we have now fallen into a world that is more violent, more uncertain and more worrisome, that will not prevent us from living, working, fabricating bubbles of freedom and carefreeness by offering people two hours during which they can get carried away, feel emotion, sometimes even in a politically-incorrect or transgressive way,” it said.
