Romain Gavras: “The acceleration towards the worst, we feel it all over the world” – Le Figaro

-

The director presents Athena, his latest film centered on the suburbs, which will be released Friday, September 23 on Netflix. “I’m not sure that films have the power to stop anger”, considers filmmaker Romain Gavras, whose film, Athena, on the burning question of the suburbs, is released Friday, September 23 on Netflix. “You never know if films have an impact on people. Me, it’s (seeing on screen) Marlon Brando who made me want to smoke… Afterwards, when you’re full of anger, I don’t know if seeing a film will stop it” , said the son of Costa-Gavras during an interview with AFP at the Venice Film Festival, where the film was presented. “On the other hand, to give the vision, as the Greek tragedy did, of a black future, it’s interesting”, continues the director, who frees himself in this “tragedy” (the word is claimed) from any concern for realism and plunges into a city on fire and blood. To read also Athena, by Romain Gavras, is revealed in an explosive trailer In the film, which borrows from ancient theater, the insurrection rises in a disadvantaged city, which demands justice after the death of a young man. Offscreen, France falls into a civil war fueled by provocations from the far right. Such a dystopia “allows us to explore a nightmare, what things could become, and to tell it with a symbolic form”, underlines the filmmaker, author of numerous music videos, from Jamie XX to Kanye West via MIA “I had total freedom” to shoot, specifies Romain Gavras, who had caused controversy fifteen years ago with a clip ultra-violent for Justice. “People’s reactions do not necessarily make mass”, evacuates the artist, who believes that “it is not the films that throw oil on the fire”. “On the front line” If he refuses everything political diagnosis or “message”, Romain Gavras feeds in Athena on the news of recent years, from police violence on the sidelines of demonstrations of “yellow vests” to the rise of the far right. “The acceleration towards the worst, we feel it all over the world, in France, in Greece, in the United States… We are nourished by everything when we make a film”, he explains. “When a country is fragile, it’s very easy to push it over the precipice and exploit a general atmosphere,” notes the director, like the far right spreading toxic rumors in Athena. ancient mythology, “we wanted to show in a timeless way that the tensions we are experiencing now are the tensions we have experienced since ancient Greece or even prehistory… It’s always the same thing, interests differences that lead to war, to conflict. And on the ground, it’s the people who have an intimate pain who will be on the front line.” At 41, Romain Gavras, who co-founded the collective of filmmakers Kourtrajmé two decades ago, admits sharing with his father Costa-Gavras, 89, “a way of looking at the world in a non-Manichean way, where everything is a little more complex than the good guys and the bad guys, which you have to try to understand and shape” at the screen. What lessons do we learn from a father like him, a living monument of political cinema, author of masterpieces like Z or L’aveu? “I learned rigor from him … and brushing your teeth every morning!” To read also The filmmaker of Greek origin Costa-Gavras awarded for his career at the San Sebastian Festival
