ESTAMIRA by Marcos Prado

Mouvements

After ten dynamic years as president of the non-profit organization Vue sur les Docs, organizer of the FIDMarseille, Michel Trégan has chosen to resign. Turning a responsibility into a labor of love, Trégan took his task to heart all throughout these ten years, elaborating and developing this local event in Marseille that now garners international acclaim.

The FID’s entire staff joins together to express its gratitude.


He is succeeded by Aurélie Filippetti, a writer, the author of books such as Les Derniers Jours de la Classe Ouvrière (Livre de poche), and an eminent political figure as well, whowas elected as the new president by the
  board of directors. The torch was passed during the closing ceremony of the 16th edition of the Festival, and was marked by an understandably emotional climate.

The nomination of a new president was accompanied by the following changes :
Vice-President: Alain Leloup

Treasurer: Henri Dumolié

Secretary: Solange Poulet


Executive board members : François Clauss, Paul Saadoun.


Board of Directors : Laurent Carenzo, Richard Copans, Dominique Gibrail, Florence Lloret, Emmanuel Porcher, Michel Trégan, Dominique Wallon.

The FID staff is also pleased to welcome Noémie Behr, previously Doctor in Economics for the CERNA at the Ecole des Mines de Paris, who succeeds Frédérique Westhoff as the Secretary General.

Remous

Filmmaking remains an activity which concerns more than just images. The filmmaker Vimukthi Jayasundara, selected for the FIDMarseille 2002 edition with LAND OF SILENCE and who had honored us as a member of the International Jury for the 16th edition of the FIDMarseille, recently presented his first full-length feature ABANDONED EARTH, nominated for the Caméra d’Or at the last Cannes Film Festival, in his homeland of Sri Lanka. Obviously indifferent to such distinctions, the Sri Lankan army threatened the director, wishing to discourage him to pursue making « films of this nature ». In an article published in a Sinahala-language journal, an officer in the Sri Lankan army declared that the director should be sentenced to death. Projected since September 9th in various movie-theaters throughout the island, the film was suddenly and inexplicably pulled out of circulation from the country’s five major theaters.

A modest but nonetheless genuine expression of solidarity goes out to Vimukthi Jayasundara.
