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.

WWE rocked by death of legendary Rocky Johnson
The statement detailed Rocky's career, which began in the mid-1960s, leading him to the WWE in 1983 before his 1991 retirement. In March 2018, The Rock explained that he'd bought his father a bigger vehicle , a Cadillac, following a hip surgery.

Tout a commencé en 1986.

Un autre grand succès comprend "Do the Right Thing", qui se déroule en 24 heures dans un quartier de Brooklyn, où les tensions raciales coïncident avec le jour le plus chaud de l'année. Patientons, cela viendra, et, le plus tôt sera le mieux. L'un de ses derniers faits d'armes, c'est avant tout son Grand Prix en 2018 avec le film BLACKkKLANSMAN sous la présidence de Cate Blanchett.

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.
