The Power of Film and Literature in France

Nathaniel Herzberg of the French newspaper ‘Le Monde’ believes that the film ‘Indigenes’ is not the only example of artwork that has had an impact upon politics. Victor Hugo’s ‘Le Notre Dame de Paris’ contributed to the establishment of an investigative body for historical monuments and Mervyn LeRoy’s film ‘Escape’ played a significant role in the criminalization of penal labor in the United States. Herzberg stated that the production team and the crew of ‘Indigenes’ have “defeated policies and is a reminder that film can change the world in difficult times.”
