“Blacklist” of French cinema: Raphaël Quenard reacts to the “rumor virus”

The names of ten actors, producers and directors of French cinema who are guilty of sexual violence are circulating on social networks. Among them, Raphaël Quenard, crowned with the César for best male revelation in 2024.

“All this is the result of a taste for blood that drives people.” Actor Raphaël Quenard, crowned with the César for best male revelation in 2024, reacted Tuesday May 14 on Canal + to the rumor concerning him.

A “black list” of ten cinema personalities supposedly guilty of sexual violence and supposedly the subject of a Mediapart investigation is circulating on social networks. The investigative site denied the existence of such a document on Monday evening, denouncing “a rumor emanating from a conspiracy account”. The affair was not just a rumor, since the board of directors of the Cannes Film Festival told Le Figaro that it was ready to remove the name of a film or a cinema personality from its programming in the event that they are called into question by this blacklist.

Anger and helplessness

Asked on the set of the show Clique about the fact that his name appears on this “list”, Raphaël Quenard shared his “feeling of helplessness and anger”, “generated by the fact of being associated with something of which we don’t know what it’s about” and which is “not supported by any facts, any accusation of any value whatsoever”.

“Defamation and slander can be carried out without there being any repercussions or convictions worthy of the name. What it costs people in their daily lives is infinitely times greater than the paltry convictions it leads to.”

“There is still a positive effect,” said the actor, “which is to remind us that we must all be uncompromising regarding this subject, that we must all take charge of it” , also estimated the actor.

Tuesday May 14, shortly before the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, around a hundred personalities signed an article in Le Monde to call for a “comprehensive law” on sexist and sexual violence.
