Video of Gertten’s speech at the LA premiere

Filed under: News — admin @ 4:17 pm

Before the screening of BANANAS!* on June 20, the executive director of Film Independent, Dawn Hudson, read a statement why the film was removed from competition. BANANAS!* director Fredrik Gertten then held a speech about the importance of free speech and the balance between different voices. This video shows the tense last minutes just before the screening.



  1. Thank you so much Fredrik! Can’t wait for the movie to come to Australia! Sending links to all my friends. Proud to be a former Malmoit! Kramar and kisses! Cheers
