Greta Gerwig attended the premiere of Furiosa: Mad Max at the Cannes Film Festival after speaking out against France’s #MeToo movement, as actress Judith Godrèche covered her mouth in a statement on the red carpet


Cannes Film Festival president Greta Gerwig attended the Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga screening on Wednesday night after speaking out about France’s #MeToo movement.

The 40-year-old director behind last year’s blockbuster Barbie was joined on the red carpet by the cast of Furiosa as well as director Judith Godrèche and her daughter Tess Barthelemy.

In an impressive move to promote their #MeToo short film, Judith and her daughter put their hands over their mouths as if to silence them.

Last week, following several recent allegations, the French parliament agreed to create a commission of inquiry to investigate sexual and gender-based violence in cinema and other cultural sectors.

Judith became a key figure in France’s MeToo movement after she accused directors Benoit Jacquot and Jacques Doillon of sexual assault when she was a teenager. Both denied the charges.
