I wish I could’ve been in New York this weekend with my queer brothers and sisters. Despite the celebrations to mark our victories, we cannot grow complacent and overlook the bigotry, the violence, the inequities still prevalent, and to a certain degree trivial, in countries that resist change. Or worse, within our own borders, where we tend to forget how much work, how much education remain compulsory. Let’s keep educating people who say : “What’s there to be proud of?” Or “Why do you still need a pride?” Or, for me : “Why is your films’ theme always homosexuality?”🤦‍♂️ The fight for freedom continues as long as freedom feels political, as opposed to inherent. Freedom is a right, a right to authenticity, and security. Freedom, for me, is the possibility of being who you are, and how you are, with no need to explain. So here’s to 50 years of pride since Stonewall, and many, many more to come. Happy Pride everyone! X J’aurais tant aimé être à Stonewall ce week-end avec mes frères et sœurs de la communauté queer. L’heure est à la fête, mais ne soyons pas satisfaits par nos victoires, et n’oublions pas la violence, l’injustice qui sont encore monnaie courante dans les pays qui refusent le changement, le progrès. Ou pire, à l’intérieur même de nos propres frontières, où il nous est facile d’omettre à quel point il demeure encore essentiel, à ce jour, d’éduquer et d’informer les gens. Ceux qui nous disent : “De quoi êtes-vous fiers, au juste?” Ou “Pourquoi avez-vous encore besoin d’une Fierté?” Ou, en ce qui me concerne : “Pourquoi le thème de tes films est-il toujours l’homosexualité?” Le combat pour la liberté continue tant qu’elle est politique, et non inhérente. La liberté est un droit, un droit à l’authenticité, et la sécurité. Pour moi, la liberté c’est pouvoir être qui l’on est, comme on est, sans explications nécessaires. Je célèbre 50 ans de fierté depuis Stonewall, et plusieurs, plusieurs autres à venir. Joyeuse Fierté, tout le monde! X

Je suis incroyablement fier du film La femme de mon frère, de mon amie Monia Chokri. Dans une époque caractérisée par l’univers de l’influence et la facilité d’une plateforme publique, écrire et réaliser un film est un geste artistique singulier, fort, unique. À l’image de ce geste, le style la cinéaste est qui plus est si personnel qu’il fait de cette œuvre un objet qui est entièrement propre à Monia, à son univers, ses préoccupations, ses instincts esthétiques, politiques, philosophiques. Il est tellement rare de voir un film et de penser : je n’ai jamais rien vu de tel! Hormis les associations faciles et systématiques, La femme de mon frère de Monia Chokri est un film qui n’aurait pu être fait que par Monia Chokri. Mais quel bonheur d’en plus pouvoir dire que ce film fait par une artiste est aussi fait pour tous. Que tous pourront apprécier son humour, son goût, son émotion, son interprétation si simple, et complexe, et humaine (Anne-Elisabeth!!!). Monia prend tellement de plaisir, de passion à filmer et réfléchir à ce que veut dire filmer. En découvrant son film, je me suis énormément remis en question. J’ai réalisé l’importance de la mise en scène. Je me suis souvenu de sa valeur et de sa vitalité! Merci Monia 💞

Don't know if you've heard but it's been a tough couple of days in Cannes...... We had rain.. at least two or three days.. anyway - so incredibly grateful to my friends for taking this journey with me, and for having the pleasure to create something, from beginning to end, with some of my favorite people in this life. I've learned, I've grown, I've lived with Matthias and Maxime. Thank you to everyone involved, and see you soon x Je ne sais pas si vous êtes au courant mais Cannes fût assez éprouvant cette année... au moins trois quatre jours de pluie, quand même... - Je suis infiniment reconnaissant envers mes amis d'avoir accepté de se joindre à moi pour cette nouvelle expérience, et de m'avoir permis de créer quelque chose, du début à la fin, en compagnie de certaines de mes personnes préférées au monde. J'ai appris, grandi, vécu, à travers Matthias et Maxime. Merci à tous ceux qui ont participé à l’aventure, et à bientôt pour la suite

Day -2 😖

xavierdolan

Even when I try I am unable to remember the last time I sat in a theatre and heard such delicate, such incisive and profound writing. Céline Sciamma’s Portrait of the Lady on Fire is magnificent! Adele Haenel’s performance is enrapturing, and although the film’s assiduous coldness is undeniably successful, the love declared to her through and by this story is the hidden force that made Sciamma's film haunt me in my sleep. I woke up this morning remembering how constant the artistry of the film was, and how it impressed me. But like with most lovers who leave us behind, the hidden secret behind their gaze is what we fall for in the first place, and it is what troubled me so here. I loved the film in all its apparent, immediate qualities, but what moved me to my core is the secret, the mystery that pulsates in its every silence and stare. I also have to say that the relief and the intimacy I felt throughout the film watching women, just women, for two hours of my life, were a novelty I want to be seeking again. It is important to witness its possibility. I felt comfort here, both romantically and psychologically, in the absence of men! Thank you to Celine and all her brilliant collaborators who made this powerful piece of cinema. I look forward to seeing it again as soon as possible.

Repost from @gaytimes - This year on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, Taiwan made history. It has become the first country in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage after Tawain’s president Tsai Ing-wen and her Democratic Progressive Party voted it into law earlier today. 🏳️‍🌈✨ Read the full story at gaytimes.co.uk now!

It’s a privilege to go back to Cannes. I am especially excited to go with Matthias and Maxime this time, a film on friendship, made with and amongst friends, and be allowed to share with those same friends the world, the place that’s given me so much joy, so much thrill over the past decade, since the premiere of I Killed My Mother. The experience promises to be as nostalgic as it will be new, and different, and I am looking forward to that. C’est un honneur de pouvoir retourner à Cannes. Je suis tout particulièrement heureux d’y emmener Matthias et Maxime, un film sur l’amitié, fait entre amis, et de pouvoir partager avec ces amis-là cet univers, cet environnement où j’ai vécu tant d’émotions depuis J’ai tué ma mère, il y a dix ans. L’expérience s’annonce aussi commémorative que différente et nouvelle, déjà.

Feels special to be back here where we filmed, exactly two years ago, scenes from Donovan with my loves @thandienewton and @benschnetzer, two incredible actors and beautiful humans - well I mean Thandie isn’t entirely human as we’ve recently discovered but that never was a problem for me. Good times.

***WATCH THE FULL TRAILER for “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan” on YouTube LINK IN BIO. Friends, I am so proud to share the trailer for this film with you. It has been a labor of love and perseverance. I’ve learned more making this movie than I ever did before. I am so grateful to @marsfilms for believing in me and in this film. Their support has been unfaltering, and their passion has remained, in spite of the wait, unchanged. “Ma vie avec John F. Donovan” hits the big screen in France on March 13th. Unfortunately, I do not know when it will be released in other countries, and more importantly, I am not, nor have ever been, and never will be, in charge of deciding when it will be released. Just like I never was in charge of deciding when this trailer would be revealed. Please know that my only wish since the very beginning of this adventure was to share everything with you. And never to hold back. Now the time has come to let go of the film. It's yours. I hope it finds you, and brings you joy and hope. ***REGARDEZ LA VERSION INTÉGRALE DE LA BANDE-ANNONCE de "Ma vie avec John F. Donovan" sur YouTube. Lien dans ma bio. Mes amis, je suis si fier de partager avec vous la bande-annonce de ce film. Ce fût un processus complexe, une quête de longue haleine, portée par l'amour et la persévérance. J'ai appris davantage sur ce film que jamais auparavant. Je suis reconnaissant à @marsfilms pour leur foi en moi, et en ce projet. Leur soutien depuis le premier jour fût indéfectible ; leur passion, inchangée, malgré l'attente. "Ma vie avec John F. Donovan" sortira en France le 13 mars prochain. Malheureusement, je ne sais pas quand il sortira dans d'autres pays. Je ne suis pas en charge, d'ailleurs, ni ne l'ai, jamais été et ne le serai jamais, de décider quand il sortira. Tout comme je n'étais pas en charge de décider du moment où il conviendrait de révéler cette bande-annonce. Sachez que mon seul désir depuis le début de cette aventure a toujours été de tout partager avec vous. De ne rien vous cacher. Le moment est venu de laisser aller ce film, m'en départir. Il est à vous. Je souhaite qu'il vous trouve, et qu'il vous apporte une forme de joie et d’espoir.

10 years.. on the set of “I Killed My Mother“. I was filled with resentment, self-loathing, insecurity, ill-placed ambitions... Longing to be understood and approved.. Out of all things that change, hair, body, the way you dress, the way you look, laugh, present yourself to the world, work, act... they’ve all been impacted by the one single thing that doesn’t change with time, but with will, and support ; self-love. That’s what’s changed over ten years, for me. And I’ve noticed that self-love, assurance, confidence, are confused too often with arrogance, or pretentiousness. They are unforgivable qualities to insecure, loveless others... But “If you can’t love yourself..........” X

Please donate to help our queer Chechen brothers and sisters flee the violence and attacks against their freedom and lives. The link is in my bio. Be generous! Give! Repost from @voices4_ Breaking news--40 queer Russians have been arrested and two have been killed in a part of another purge by the Chechnya government. This purge is a direct result of the international government failing to hold Russia accountable. Voices4 will keep you updated on our response, but right now you can give the The LGBT Network that is helping queer Chechens flee this violence--donate at help.lgbtnet.org/chechnya-en (link in our bio)

Repost from @douglasbooth - The idea of being forced to flee home is unimaginable, let alone having to do so as a child. Yet more than half of all refugees and displaced persons around the world are children - just like Gharwali, whom I met in Iraq, having just fled Daesh in Mosul. She was the most gorgeous, smiley and upbeat girl and she had her parents by her side to support her. However, in the conflict and upheaval forcing them to flee their homes, thousands of children lose their parents to violence or become separated from them and endure long journeys on their own. This #WorldChildrensDay, let us not forget the children who have been forced to into this unimaginably frightening situation. In 2017 alone, an estimated 173,800 unaccompanied and separated child refugees and asylum-seekers were reported worldwide. If you want to help, please consider making a donation to @refugees. One of their key roles is helping unaccompanied and separated children seek asylum and help restore their hope of a future. In 2017 they provided assistance to 45,500 unaccompanied and separated children who sought asylum worldwide. Follow @refugees to learn more.

We wrapped on Matthias and Maxime last night after 48 days of pure joy, and passionate creation. I’m grateful to have found a family of artists and friends with whom I get to make movies, and find escape. I cannot wait for you to see it. X
