  • Spike Lee est honoré d’être la première personne de la diaspora africaine aux États-Unis à assurer cette fonction

En effet, c'est une grande première pour le festival, qui souhaite plus de diversité en son sein.

Le réalisateur américain Spike Lee sera le président du Jury du 73e Festival de Cannes, ont annoncé mardi 14 janvier les organisateurs de cette édition. Un film tourné vers le public, tout en étant un pamphlet, un polar, une scrutation des liens entre noirs et blancs, et un décryptage de la montée de l'extrême droite aux USA.

Thierno Ibrahima Dia, qui enseigne le cinéma à l'Université Bordeaux Montaigne (France) et à Niamey (Niger), rappelle l'épisode de la montée des marches du Festival de Cannes 2018 par 16 actrices noires et métisses du mouvement "Noire n'est pas mon métier", pour suggérer que la désignation de Spike Lee s'inscrit dans un contexte de revendication d'une plus grande ouverture du cinéma français à la diversité.

"Cannes est une patrie naturelle et une caisse de résonance mondiale pour ceux qui éveillent les esprits et remettent en question nos positions et nos idées fixes. La personnalité flamboyante de Spike Lee promet beaucoup", ont-ils poursuivi.

"Tout au long de ma vie, les événements heureux me sont arrivés de façon inopinée sans que je m'y attende".

Spike Lee affirme que lorsqu'on l'a appelé pour lui offrir de présider le jury, il était à la fois heureux, surpris et fier. "On pourrait même aller jusqu'à dire que Cannes a façonné ma trajectoire dans le cinéma mondial." a-t-il poursuivi.

Je porterai toujours dans mon cœur cette relation particulière. Spike Lee a séduit autant que déconcerté, touché la gloire et traversé le désert. Une consécration pour le réalisateur de Malcom X, défenseur de la cause afro-américaine.

Oscar d'honneur en 2016, César d'honneur en 2003, ce cinéaste controversé, souvent mis à l'écart par le système hollywoodien (qui a quand même pu engranger 430M$ de recettes au box office grâce à ses films), professeur de cinéma à la New York University, devrait apporter du rythme et un regard singulier sur la prochaine compétition. Il se dit aussi "honoré d'être la première personne de la diaspora africaine " à tenir ce rôle.
