“Me too”. Judith Godrech presents her film about sexual violence

The actress will present her short film at the Cannes Film Festival on May 15.

“This is our story. It’s your story. This movie belongs to you,” he wrote on Instagram on May 7 as a dedication to all victims of sexual violence. Judith Godrech took to social media to share the poster of her new film titled Me too. A title that sounds like a French version of a nod to the “Me Too” movement for this short film, made from the stories of victims collected since the actress was called to testify. A call that became possible after he became a standard bearer in the fight against sexual abuse of minors in film and entertainment more broadly. Because she herself spoke publicly and shared her own experience, which led her to file a complaint earlier this year against directors Benoît Jacco and Jacques Doillon for rape and sexual and physical abuse dating back to her teenage years. “Then the question arose, what am I going to do with it? What do we do when we are overwhelmed by what we hear, by the number of testimonies,” assured the actress, explaining the initiative of this project, quoted in the press release of the Cannes Film Festival.

“Like a book or a word that makes us smile”

Me too is a 17-minute short film that will be presented at the opening ceremony of the “A Certain Look” section, as well as at the Cinéma de la Plage at the Cannes Film Festival on May 15. This film “highlights the stories of victims of sexual violence. So many individual experiences that add their own and underline their sad universality,” the Cannes festival notes.AFP:, who “desires to give these testimonies.” “Exactly one month after this salutary speech, on March 23, 2024, Judith Godrech took the two mediums of expression she knows best: writing and film, and brought together women and men testifying to their traumatic experiences,” the Festival added. Without revealing the content of the short film, the festival allows us to assume that it will be about music and collective dance, in which a thousand women and men will participate.

“Your faces. Your appearance. Your beauty. Thank you for your trust, Judith Godresh also wrote in the caption of her Instagram post. I measure its value. That’s huge. I would love this movie to sit on your bedside table. Like a book or word that makes us smile, supports us, and reminds us that we are not alone and alone when things fall apart. THANK YOU.”
