Alan Parker: Marrakech Festival provides an alternative to US cinema industry
Morocco-Regional, Local, 12/10/2004
British filmmaker, Sir Alan Parker, said, here Thursday, that Marrakech International Film Festival provides an alternative to the domineering US film industry.
"This festival shows indeed that there's another cinema that could be seen as an alternative to US cinema, for young people to see," Parker, jury president of this year's edition, told a press conference.
This encounter gave me the opportunity to discover Morocco, a fascinating country, he added, underlining that Marrakech International Film Festival will help Moroccan cinema and the country's film making industry.
Parker noted that the jury members in the festival have been chosen with regard to their individual views, tastes and sensibilities.
"A good movie is one that moves me and makes me think. I don't care where it comes from," he said, adding that he feels comfortable working with able actors who know their lines just like US actor, Kevin Spacey.
