Jane Campion, the only woman ever to win the Palme d’Or here,was asked gender question just now. “I think you’d have to say there’s inherent sexism in the industry,” she explained a moment ago. Thierry Fremaux told her that of 1,800 submissions this year, 7% were directed by women. 20% of films across Fest are by women he told her. “It does seem very un-democratic,” Campion added, “The guys seem to be eating all the cake.” #Cannes2014 (at Palais des Festivals, Cannes)

Hubert Sauper: But there were moments when I remember thinking, “What the fuck am I doing here?” When we filmed the [American Christian] missionaries, I was at a point of total despair. These guys plowed into these villages because they were kind of at home, because these were their savages to whom they distributed these white socks.

Eric Hynes: Blaring white tennis socks on otherwise naked black children.

Hubert Sauper: People thought we were also missionaries, but you can’t say: “I’m not a missionary, I’m a nice guy.” Because I’m not—I’m the same, with the same kind of face.
