Here is the editorial of this n°543:
Hollywood overtaken by reality?
Bryan Cranston shouting into the microphone: “We will not allow our jobs to be taken away and handed over to robots. » F. Murray Abraham who is picketing; Steve Buscemi, Christian Slater or Jessica Chastain who take the floor on Twitter (sorry… X) to assert their claims. We didn’t think we’d see that one day: extras and mega stars associated to shake Hollywood.
It has been forgotten in recent years, but the Mecca of entertainment, even if it is now owned by huge capitalist, even international conglomerates, has often had its heart on the left. And the most fascinating thing about what is happening in LA today is precisely to see the stars descending into the arena, joining the industry’s blue-collar workers to put some heart, flesh and conscience back into a flow of programs that tends more and more towards disembodiment…
Yes, this battle will have consequences. The actors and actresses, joining the screenwriters, have deserted not only the writing rooms, the film sets, but also the promotional spaces. The release calendar is already impacted, the series will be turned upside down… But if this movement is beneficial, it is because it reminds us that in the expression “dream factory”, there is dream, okay, but there is also the word factory. With what it implies in terms of social relationships, conflicts and… reality.
