London, 20 Mar (PL) Filmmaker Steven Spielberg today supported the Time’s Up movement in this capital city, organized by women in Hollywood industry following accusations of sexual abuse against Harvey Weinstein.
So far, the director is the most recent and reliable voice to have made public his support for the campaign, which he describes as an historic moment in cinema’.
Today we are in the presence of an authentic, positive scenario in the sector, thanks to the movement promoted by our colleagues, and which my wife and I supported from the beginning, said that film authority.
The last few months have been diverse for the industry; also for gender and race, because we must seek equality in all senses; that is why I speak out and I am infinitely grateful to Time’s Up, he said.
I think in 10 years we’ll look back and realize what a decisive moment we’re living in right now,’ said the director.
Spielberg strengthened his support for sexual abuse actions during the Legend of Our Lives award gala, an honorary laureate presented by the British film magazine Empire.
The award was presented to the filmmaker on Sunday in recognition of his extensive and plausible film career, which includes emblematic films, including E.T., the Alien, 1982; Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List, 1993; and most recently, The Post: The Pentagon Archives, 2017.
The Hollywood star will release the movie Ready Player One on March 28th, about a near future in which humanity is hooked on a video game called OASIS.
The detonator explodes when the founder hides a treasure within the hobby when he dies and whoever finds it will obtain a great fortune. It is a race for the discovery of the century that has so far been very well accepted by critics.
