Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Tuesday that this is necessary “The new Chaplin will prove that cinema is not silent” before the war in Ukraine, in a message from Kyiv broadcast at the opening of the 75th Cannes Film Festival.

“We will continue to fight, we have no other choice. (…) I am convinced that the “dictator” will lose,” Zelensky said in front of the cream of world cinema, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin and the film “The Great Dictator” by Charlie Chaplin, which he repeatedly mentioned.

Is the movie going to shut up or talk about this (the war)? He asked.

“We need a new Chaplin to prove to us today that cinema is not silent. (…) Hatred will disappear in time, dictators will die,” he added in a serious tone.

The Cannes Film Festival, whose 75th edition began on Tuesday, promised that Ukraine would be “on everyone’s mind” by announcing a program in April that selected several films from the country.

On Tuesday afternoon, at the start of the opening ceremony, presented by actress Virginie Efira, the question of cinema’s political involvement was raised: “Can cinema change the world? I’m not sure. But it may change our understanding of him. And as a result, the world has really changed (…) Freelance filmmakers are what the Cannes Festival is celebrating.”

The war in Ukraine, which entered its 83rd day this Tuesday, has already forced more than 14 million people from their homes – about eight million internally displaced people and more than 6.2 million – to neighboring countries, according to the latest UN figures, which rates this migrant crisis as the worst in Europe since World War II (1939-1945).

Also, according to the UN, about 15 million people in Ukraine are in need of humanitarian assistance.

The Russian invasion, justified by Putin as the need to “denazify” and demilitarize Ukraine for Russia’s security, was condemned by the international community at large, which responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and imposing sanctions on Russia that cut across virtually every sector, from banking to sports.
