“For Your Consideration” Hollywood, CA #INDECLINE
The purpose of the #MeToo movement is not primarily punitive, but rather to give a voice to a group that has generally been marginalized for the benefit of an aristocratic minority. Are we talking about predators, or are we simply talking about “boys being boys”? This is both an economic and racial question. So are we talking about bad apples, or are we talking about the systemic rot of a system that encourages the naked expression of power as a tool of control?
INDECLINE has a background in film (amongst other clandestine activities). Some of those that we grew up loving- @tarantinoxx , for example - have sat back and allowed an environment hostile to a whole gender to calcify into the mechanism of a business. What’s scarier? The actions of Weinstein, who is one man? Or the collective decision to ignore his bad behavior for the sake of the system?
At INDECLINE, we wanted to take a moment to stand with our sisters. A movement is more than a hashtag or a meme. It’s more than a magnet for social media likes. Hollywood still has a long way to go. We speak to the perpetrators, of course, but also to the enablers. Don’t stand by for the sake of a bunch of glitter and a misleading camera angle. Sometimes the story isn’t as pretty as the trailer. That’s okay, but let’s work towards a point where all stories get told.
