Main Film is an artist-run center committed to supporting its community as a whole, without distinction, in the creation of independent film.
Our strength is in our members. They are our very essence.
Beyond general statements of solidarity against racism following the events of the summer of 2020, but also against more recent and historically ongoing acts of racism, it seemed essential to offer a place so our members can express their feelings towards the discrimination they experience regarding their skin color, their origins, their sexual orientation, their gender, and for them to share their reflections about the societal issues that exists in any form of rejection of the Other.
Each month, Main Film will provide a platform for its members to share their thoughts on the discrimination they face.
Our fifteenth contributing artist is Lamia Chraibi.
Because it is artists who carry both the role of representing society and making it evolve.
