The entire journalistic staff members of the Cahiers du Cinema, the periodical that launched the French New Wave, have quitted after its sale.
The monthly, which once hired the likes of Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut, was sold this month to a group of film producers and tech tycoons.
Its 15 staff the authors and editors said the new owners posed a danger to the magazine’s cherished independence.
” The brand-new stockholders include eight makes who create a conflict of interest for a critical publication ,” the journalists said in a statement.” Whatever articles are published, there would be a suspicion of obstruction .”
They are also unhappy that the brand-new proprietors want to turn the often earnest review into a more loosened and “fashionable” predict.” Les Cahiers has always been engaged, taking clear berths ,” the statement said.
The magazine’s brand-new handling has yet to respond to the mass resignation.
