New interview of Emma Watson with Sky Cine News



For the Italian release on May 26, Sky Cinema aired this new interview of Emma filmed a few months ago. I do hope it means we can expect more promo.


Translation from Lavinia in the comments. Credit her if you use it:

Face to face with Emma Watson. The ex Hermione from Harry Potter is now in the cinemas with a new political thriller, which talks about the Chilean coup d'état in 1973.

—————

Barbara Tarricone: "Dear friends, we are here to talk to with a talented actress, wise and with brave choices. We know her as Hermione, but now there is a new chapter of her life. We find her as a very strong character in the thriller << Colonia >>. She's Emma Watson and it is a pleasure to meet you. You did so many brave roles after Harry Potter, expecially this one."

Emma: "Yes, I was very attracted for the role of Lena. She's a very fighting and reckless character. I thought: << Wow! I would like to be her one day! >> She's has very dynamic and fighting soul. I really loved the fact she was collocated in the Chilean revolution, which I didn't know anything in particular."

( From the trailer: Daniel: "There was a military call! We have to go!" Lena: "Where to go?" Daniel: "I don't know, just out!" )

Barbara Tarricone: "Absolutely! Because your character was fictionally invented, but the story is true!"

Emma: "Yes, the story is true."

Barbara Tarricone: "Tell us about this terrifying place, Colonia Dignidad."

Emma: "Colonia Dignidad is chilean place founded by a german imigrated group in 1961 and it has also been a place where people has been tortured. Daniel, Lena's boyfriend, has been kidnapped and taken to Colonia Dignidad and Lena will do anything to save him."

( From the trailer: Lena: "Where is he now?" Friend: "He's in a place in the south, completely isolated from the world." Lena: "What is it called?" Friend: "Colonia Dignidad". )


Barbara Tarricone: "Yes, is a very involving thriller and I think we do need stories like this because also women can save men, if necessary!"

Emma: "Yes, absolutely!"

Barbara Tarricone: "I saw you did a lot of research to look at the details and dialogues are totally true!"

Emma: "Yes, the movie director Florian Gallenberger did a lot of research for almost five years and I've been to Chile with him to see the camp and talk to survivors! When you want to talk about a true story, you must pay attention to details very carefully."

( From the trailer: Friend: "It's a sort of cult headed by this man called Paul Schäfer." Lena: "What if I go there?"

Barbara Tarricone: "Now it seems you took a year off from acting."

Emma: "Well, yes! After filming "Colonia" and the live action "Beauty and the beast", I want to take either six months or one year to concentrate on the work I have now with the United Nations."

Barbara Tarricone: "It's very interesting to talk about your campaign, where men can know what to do with women. HeForShe, right?

Emma: "Yes, I think sexual equality is a benefit for everybody and I think is something that everybody can work on. Because it could be optimistic for every human being."

Barbara Tarricone: "Thank you for talking with us Emma and good luck with the book club you founded online! I follow you!"

Emma: "Good! Thank you!"

If you want,I can translate it this afternoon! Just tell me where to post it because I am italian and I can help you!

Emma does not nothing in HeforShe? She has taken a year off to heforshe but she does nothing, only read and do interviews a famous, I am disappointed I expected much more of this :/

Eden said...

Thanks Lavinia. You can post it here :)

To Anon, it's not because we don't hear or see anything happening, that it means nothing is. Emma is always very secretive about all her projects. The HeForShe concert still hasn't happened. I'm pretty sure that must take tons of time to put together. She could be working on it every single day and we wouldn't know.

Anonymous said...

Oh yeah a concert will really help gender equality. I wonder where all that money will go. HeForShe itself? For self promo? Emma has literally done NOTHING! Celebrity feminism is a trend.

Eden said...

Right. Money and awareness never ever helped any cause. Schools for girls magically appear without any financing needed. I'm not saying the money would go there, I don't know. But that's the thing, we know nothing about this concert, or even if it's still happening. So criticizing it doesn't make any sense.

Anonymous said...

HeForShe is a campaign that HOPES people will get up and do something. "Look at us! We care! Oh they made a school? IT'S THANKS TO US! Because we talked about it!" If the concert money actually goes to building a school in Africa then it'll be fine. But for now the only news I've heard is "so-and-so heard about heforshe and built a school." Did heforshe donate money? No.
Emma would help if she went to shelters and talked to women there. But no. Let's talk to white feminists who tell us how we should live our life.

Eden said...

I personally have no clue what HeForShe do with the money, so they could be donating it for all I know. I hope they do. But Emma did say she was going to travel with HeForShe. I tried to find the interview where she said it but I can't even remember if it was in a filmed interview or a magazine one, but I do remember her saying something like that.

In the beginning, when she began HeforShe, everything she said was presented. Since then we heard about OMGYES- maximising sexual pleasure which she subscribed to, everything about her bookshelf and those comfortable feminists that reject the very nature of being woman. Somewhere along the line after the beginning of HeforShe, Emma got lost. I have trouble finding her believeable. I have feminist tendencies but I seach for it rooted in Christian humanism, which is more realistic. Look at Angelina Jolie.

Ross Taggart said...

Heforhe the result of Emma's speeches at Davos and the UN have converted literally Millions of men world wide including myself. Emma Watson has shown the courage of her convictions on numerous occasions including her statement about her sexual practices which took personal courage and displayed integrity which was in fact aimed at supporting young women make informed and honest decisions about there right to the same sexual freedoms as men.

I would expect your religious tenets and feminists leanings would have prevented you from making personal attacks on a someone who is first and foremost a young Woman.

My views on Emma Watson are the exact opposite of yours and like Emma Watson I am not anonymous. Ross Taggart (@RTHG82)

Come on Ross Taggart, its only statements from other people. They cant and wont hurt your Em - so calm down!

Nobody wants to hurt Emma, but her intention with feminism has become unclear with her bookshelf. I read some of the books and thought- What does she want with these people? I am all for gender equality, but now she is stumbling over the brush in the woods.

Ross Taggart said...

What hurts someone is what hurts us all no matter our position words have power an should not be used against someone casually.

I am on the goodreads group and have read the books they have been thoughtful, enlightening and varied and for the record like all of Emma's projects involve many people she is only one of 8 moderators.

Her Views on feminism are perfectly clear to me and have been consistent throughout. She wants people to be aware of gender inequality and to have a forum for there views.

In the long run things aren't changed easily Ross. Emma hasn't said anything that hasn't been said before and her white feminism is ticking people off. Emma is all talk and no action.

The Anon obsessed with omgyes returns. One begins to wonder what your puritanical obsession with that website really is. It was an incredibly minor, infinitesimal plug (not that it matters, because it's completely benign anyway), and it's a tribute to sensationalism and human herd behavior that anyone still brings it up.

Women are allowed to enjoy sex too, not just men. It's a normal part of being a sexually active person that has been repressed by unjust society. Get used to it.

Anonymous said...

"Emma hasn't said anything that hasn't been said before"

Then it's an issue in itself that it STILL hasn't completely caught on, and a tribute to HeForShe that it revitalized the discussion and made millions aware of, and desire to fix, the issues still present in society today.

This isn't difficult math. It's like you desperately want to hate, but struggle to come up with real reasons to back up what you already feel. Sad.

Anonymous said...

The problem is that she started as an individual. But now they've got their claws in her. She's sold her soul (her right to her own thoughts, ideas and feelings)to hive mind collectivist leeches and looters.
She's barely human now. Little more than a meat and bone puppet with the hands of hundreds of feminist authors up her ass. There's not a thought in her head that's her own anymore. When they've retracted their hands from her ass, she goes to bed at night not with a sense of well being, but totally empty. She NEEDS those hands to feel things now.
This is what she wants for us all.

Ross Taggart said...

You have a very limited view of Emma specifically and people in general. There is little to say that has not been covered on that point.

I will say from Goodreads and other sites that Emma writes clearly and consistently and has her own mind, most women (all those that have the freedom to do so) do.

My own experience has been like the anno further back mentioned having the truth of what women face and what feminist means in the world today outlined clearly and the fact that has an not unintelligent man I had no idea how bad it is.

It is a matter of shame to me I did not look more carefully before, the treatment Emma Watson has suffered since she made a stand has reinforced my view; She recently made a stand for the environment: same women same approach no problem no outcry but ask that the genders are equal and the result is everything from ridicule to aggression.

Lets be clear the Genders are inherently equal it is ignorance or deliberate pressure that keep the imbalance in place. thanks to Emma Watson highlighting this myself and many other people are on board to correct this.

She earned my respect a rare thing in the world today. Do I think she is perfect, of course not she is Just a young woman how could have the easiest of lives but instead tries to change the world, doing so treating men and women as individuals and with respect.

I would encourage us all to do he same.

We'll hear nothing of this anymore when her UN contract ends. Like I said, she hasn't said anything else new and yet she's praised as this big activist, while other who really make a difference get ignored. Only because they're not a cute, white, cis, actress. She needs to learn A LOT more about feminism before preaching. And white feminists like that are a trend and don't care about people and experiences they themselves haven't known. "I was called bossy." Yeah those are the REAL issues.

Ross Taggart said...

Firstly we all are what we are and where we come from but if we only let certain people of any stripe stand for things then nothing will change. To be a feminist and activist you simply say you are and take action like you are doing now in fact.

But to expand argument Emma has stated she has been followed and stalked and was afraid going home many women in all walks of life face that kind of abuse and more casual kind each day if people like Emma (who do not actually have to say anything) don't speak out then Men like me don't know there is a problem a very serious one you can agree.

She was asked to speak and Davo and UN, was her celebrity a factor of course but so was her intelligence and courage she has has sparked debate like we are having all over. She has achieved this when she is a working A list actress and only 26 years old. She has a long history of action both for female rights and environment another factor in her selection.

As to real issues do you really think things will be changed without involving the top %1. It is not the attention of people at the top we need to worry about but there indifference.

Emma using her attributes including her integrity and hard work, she has earned all she has as a matter of record. To at least try and make things better is an improvement on most of us.

May I ask why you seem so down on her there are many more of her peers far more deserving of you ire than Emma.

Look at LUMOS from JK Rowling; she has put her money where her mouth is without a bookshelf, self-glorification and feminism, eventhough she clearly is one. She is a mother and wife who struggles for the rights of all people and tries to correct an imbalance. Not only did she give us wonderful books, the HP series, she also gave back what she has given.She made billions, lost the billionaire status and gave millions to LUMOS to help children find good families who live in home. I respect this woman. Emma is a nice kid with a big mouth, who knows nothing about life.

Yes - Indeed !

The problem is that Emma feminism, It has become a "feminism of celebrities"
it is as if only care about the problems of women in Hollywood, only makes interviews with artists, talks about economic inequality between actors and actresses .... there are women who are really bad
Her speech at the UN, was great, I loved it, but she has not spoken about these issues, has focused on its professional sector, and sorry but it is unfair, if you're a feminist, you have to be for all women not just your friends who earns millions

Ross Taggart said...

The arguments and becoming recursive, we all work in our environment I cannot reach the performing arts at any level let alone the highest. Emma cannot walk the streets and march for example.

In the end it a personal choice I trust in Emma's intentions some of you do not. Femisnts if it is to effect change needs to use all the alies it can wherever it can.

Still we have monopolized the board enough and I may just be fanning the flames. So I give my support to Emma and her works as my last word.

Interesting phenomenon here.

When people lack a rational argument or point behind their negative emotions toward someone or something, they will often fall back upon generalized stock insults or criticisms. Generally, these criticisms are quite vague stand-ins that can apply to a variety of situations. But this Anon's are very specific, coming from, to the well-read reader, a quite obvious source.

Might I suggest you stumbled upon the incorrect comments section? I believe you were looking for the objectivist erotic fanfic blog.

So it's better that no one does it, instead of Emma? Like it or not, Emma's campaign was a huge force in extending the desire for equality to the younger generations and to men. This is a simple fact. I've been a feminist for nearly two decades - I remember.

Second, you do understand that your criticism that Emma "gets praise" while others are broadly ignored is entirely juvenile? It's not about who gets the most gold stars. Emma receives media attention in scale with her celebrity - this will be true of anything she does, not just what she does with the UN. I will point out, however, it's rather irrational, even mean-spirited of you to pin this as criticism squarely on Emma's shoulders, when clearly it should be a broader criticism of the way society functions. I suppose it is quite easy, and a common tactic of bullies, to attack people for things over which they have no control.

Daff said...

Oh my god! what's wrong with you Anon? Why you make all of these arguments? it would be much easier if you say that you just hate her. That woukd be more genuine.

Daff said...

Oh, and what's wrong with being white? I mean, I didn't know that there's a white and (insert your skin color here) feminism, she has talked about pay gap, sexual assault, slut shaming, etc, etc... all those things that happen to many woman, black women, white women, asian, latin, arab, tall, short. It is strange how you claim that you are a feminist and then you complain because she talked about how she was called "bossy" when boys are not called like that when they have the same behaviour, not very feminist from your part.

Anonymous said...

-First Anon complains because on his/her opinion Emma is not doing things for HeforShe
-then Anon says he/she expected more (what made me think he/she believed in her at some point, if that is not the case then there's no reason to expect anything)
-then Anon complains about celebrity feminism ( what? so why is she/he expecting something if she/he doesn't like celibrity feminism?)
-then Anon complains because she's white
-Ends up complaining because Emma Watson is Emma Watson, LOL

Anonymous said...

Celebrity feminism true- men get paid in a movie than women. I believe Emma has good intentions but she runs herself thin fast without having a concept to follow. I am drawing a small comparison now. Tolkien said once in a letter that he created thhe map for LOTR first and then the characters began their adventure on the paths that the map reveals. Emma begins her adventure without a map, and kind of creates her map on the way. I like the mention of LUMOS of J.K. Rowling. I really admire that woman, a feminist yes- in a normal way- she created a map and is following the path to the goal.

Anonymous said...

@Daff,

I am not one of the Anons hating on Emma, I was the one most recently arguing with them before your post. But I'll answer "what's wrong with being white?"

Nothing, of course, and this is where our Anon friend seems to get confused. Inequality of the sexes DOES of course effect women of different races and background differently, unfortunately. There is documentation of this, and is an issue that absolutely does need addressing. But that Emma herself is white is not an issue. She can't exactly help that, can she? And is it really her place to lecture non-white women about their specific problems? No, absolutely not, and if she did, she'd receive flak for that as well (more rightfully, though). She interviewed Malala - Malala spoke for herself. She put Persepolis on her reading list - the author spoke for herself.

We need more men and women in general, of every race and background, speaking up about inequality and sexism. This is the purpose of HeForShe. So yes, Daff, I agree, and would like to add that our aforementioned Anon has no legitimate point.

I don't think anyone that comes to this site hates or less dislikes Emma.I dare to say that they are indeed fans. They express a difference of opinion to her approach on things. I think it is good that people think critically and do not just accept whatever is presented to them. I live in Germany, and for the Germans being critical of any situation is the first approach. That is just the way it is. I think as a whole Europeans tend to be more critical of seemingly banal situations. Feminism for the right cause is good, for the wrong psychological disposition it can be a disaster. Gender equality is morally right, but most important is to help the families in the world be strong, which creates a natural gender equality. Feminism also tends to sensationalize on alternatives that people choose. Just live your life and be as happy as you can be. If one is homosexual then be so, but the world doesn't need to know if a male or female couple are marrying in Reno or whereever. This is driving sensationalism onward and people's rights are not helped. Help women who must live in shelters with their children because of an abusive husband at home. Help the family. I like the mention of Rowling, the HP author. Her LUMOS is the perfect example of helping a child to live a respectful, safe life so that they do not become abusive and violent because. In every bully hides an inferiority complex; in every dictator cowers a child bully. People like Angelina Jolie and J.K. Rowling are really doing something, and they do not hype all this feminist stuff around them. I am sure they are such, but they do not need to fabricate their identity for everyone to see. They act upon what they know to be true. Jolie knows that children in this world suffer. She has adopted three children and is in the process of adopting another child, and has three of her own children- so seven children. J.K. Rowling works to place children into family and get them out of institutions. This is an honorable quest.She has a good LOTR map.

Anonymous said...

Yet another anon (maybe not (probably not)) completely misses the point of HeForShe. Being "critical" doesn't mean misunderstanding or being confused about something obvious that everyone else implicitly understood. Being "critical" doesn't mean having a knee-jerk reaction to something without bothering to use your brain. Disagreeing with your inane self-styled "criticism" doesn't mean we accept whatever we're told, and it's aggressive for you to suggest as such.

I'd never be bothered by legitimate, intelligent criticism. By deliberately abandoning any attempt at such in favor of this fatuous buzzspeak, you are in effect only communicating empty hatred.

Anonymous said...

HeforShe is completely understood, but I am not so sure that there is a real plan of operation and what is important. Gender equality should be followed up. What what is being done concretely? Family must be healed and helped before a natural gender equality can happen. This is not knee jerking or self-styled but rather solid research in psychology and sociology. Any social-worker works to help the family. The child learns negative and positive, loving and violent behavior in the family.
I think one lacks intelligence if one can only insult if the criticism does not follow one's own understanding and opinion. I do not react, I read, listen, collect the facts, look at whats being dabbed in and am critical or praising.

Anonymous said...

"HeforShe is completely understood"

No. If you understood HeForShe, you wouldn't have made the arguments about Angelina and JK being "good" feminists, because they're quiet about it. That's the point of HeForShe, to not be quiet about it. Being quiet about it has led to feminists being slandered, people refusing to even look at gender equality, and people assuming everything is already equal and fine. That is the very POINT of HeForShe, so your criticism makes absolutely no sense. It's not about "sensationalism", its about changing the attitude towards gender equality. That is incredibly important. And it has worked.

Now that we've established you didn't understand HFS, go back and re-read the last comment. Have a good day.

Anonymous said...

They are not quiet about it, they act as an empowered woman to change the world. J.K. Rowling is an empowered woman who changes the world. Emma talked about the plight of young boys in society and how that affects how they act toward girls. I thought that all what she had said was very insightful, but these women do something. They act to make human life better for the unfortunate. I also see HeforShe as a vehicle to change attitudes, but what has happened since then. Again I see these women making a real difference as empowered women.
Gender equality is morally right and must be corrected in all societies. Awareness is fine, but these two super wealthy women are doing something for gender equality where people are hurting. We are aware of many things in our lives, but how often do we act on our awareness unless we are confronted with reality. I am a teacher, and respect for individual difference gender equality is one thing that we work very consciously in the classroom and activities that we pursue. Sometimes it is frightening what children bring from home, and what needs to be dealt with in a gentle, compassionate way.
My problem is not HEforShe but all the other extreme feminism that is being hailed and even pushed. Somewhere the focus has to be the normal family in which children grow up.

Anonymous said...

Again, what they do is not the function of HeForShe. You're complaining your apple doesn't taste enough like an orange.

Lots of people do charities, we know Emma participates in some herself. But what Emma's done with HeForShe has never been done before, and that's precisely why gender equality has been allowed to be put on hold for so long. Fighting for gender equality had been turned into a joke, at least here in America. But now millions of young people not only realize there's an issue, but refuse to stand for it, and will continue fighting for it going into the future. And as they make their own families, they will raise their children to believe in equality.

I think we're done? I can't imagine what else there is to say.

Anonymous said...

Gender equality must be fought for, but in this struggle the family should not be ignored, and precise work must be done to help families. Awareness is not enough. We know many things that we know we should act upon, but we don't for whatever reason. In my work, I see to it that students understand each other as equal and precious and that they treat each other accordingly. I know of many teachers in Germany who work in the classroom to help students see and understand each other as equal and worthy of respect. That is a second start, but the foundation must be laid in the family. A society will never have gender equality if people struggle to have basic needs fulfilled. Prostitution, alcoholism is fated in poverty-stricken homes and neighborhoods, and countries...
I am not arguing Emma, gender equality has been a red flag for a long time for me, because people are only aware, but do not really do anything except the way I described, which I have experienced in my profession and in my family. My grandmother knew gender equality with a post WWII German husband because that is something they both brought from home.
