Director Alfonso Cuarón wants Hollywood to step up without being pressured. But will they?
We all want to find our Hollywood mentor, the person who helps us understand the business and finds us work. Ideally, these mentors are raising up new and diverse voices, who can help Hollywood find its way into the 21st century.
But until that happens, Hollywood is beginning to govern themselves. Case in point, the new Academy standards for Best Picture.
Still, not all of Hollywood loves the rules…but not for the you think.
Alfonso Cuarón spoke with Indiewire last week and this is what he had to say, “Everybody is trying to figure out ways of making more diverse cinema. The interesting thing is that it’s not coming naturally. Everybody has to respond to outside pressures. That’s a little bit disappointing—that it needs to go through rules and regulations for things to happen when it should just be a natural process of societal evolution that apparently is not happening.”
