Film maker Roman Polanski possibly put out of French film association

2 min read

The board of the French film association ARP has approved new regulations that can expel members who are being prosecuted for a sexual crime. That reports French media. The measure is directed against filmmaker Roman Polanski, who was recently accused of rape by photographer and former model Valentine Monnier.

In addition, the director is still in jail in the United States for abusing a thirteen-year-old girl in the late 1970s. Now that the board has actually adopted the rule, Chairman Pierre Jolivet confirms that the rules relate to Roman Polanski, given his case in the US.

Before the 86-year-old Roman Polanski is actually suspended or expelled, the new regulations must first be adopted by the approximately two hundred members of the film association. This will be voted on during a special meeting, the date of which has yet to be determined.

Monnier’s accusation coincides with the release of the new Polanski film, J’Accuse (An Officer and A Spy). Last week, demonstrators dressed in black disrupted a screening of the film. They had signs with the names of women who had accused Roman Polanski of rape. Moreover, a campaign was launched online calling for the new film to be boycotted.

Polanski denies Monnier’s allegations. The film maker has been living in France since 1978, where he is protected against extradition to the US.
