True, people love their bubbles and curated lives.
Help me understand why you believe this? Why you prefer to live in a bubble? Wanting a film site to ignore what's going on in the world just because it is a film site, is the height of willful ignorance. There is a certain amount of privilege in wanting a curated life. Filmmakers need to be immersed in the world to be better storytellers. There is nothing wrong with covering things outside of filmmaking, on a filmmaking site, especially events that will affect us all.
You can't shelter yourself from the world, just because you are a filmmaker.
spoken like a true white guy.
I'd like to jump in here. Your privilege gives you the hubris to say such things as "I just don't think it's a system wide problem that needs CONSTANT attention." Look at the stats on the lack of diversity. The same logic is applied to police violence against black folks. Well. I don't have a problem with cops, so. Get outside yourself and your white experience. The problem with your line of thinking is you seem to believe that people of color don't have the skills or the intelligence to begin with, and I think that is a systemic problem, a white supremacy ideology. I see the same reaction when it comes to discussing affirmative action. Never mind that systemic racism has kept people of color out of every major institution in this country. For me, there is no "regardless of skin color" I can walk outside tonight and be at a very real risk of being shot by a cop. You on the other hand, are not. Just because other people are given opportunities, doesn't mean something is being taken away from you.
