Vogue Magazine’s Complicated Relationship with Diversity
Edward Enninful, the new editor-in-chief of British Vogue, has a proven history of addressing diversity that many hope will be the start of an overhaul of the global Vogue brand.
In March, he responded sublimely when US President Donald Trump nominated Supreme Court judge Neil Gorsuch, who allegedly does not care much about civil rights: Enninful styled a shoot for his then employer, the New York-based W magazine, in which a range of ethnically diverse models climb the stairs of an imaginary "Supreme Court". In February, after Trump initiated the much-debated immigration ban, Enninful put together a video showcasing the various fashion celebrities who have immigrated into the US. Even before his first official day in Vogue’s Mayfair offices, Enninful had hired two English superstars of Jamaican descent in an attempt to diversify the team. Model Naomi Campbell and make-up artist Pat McGrath both share Enninful’s aim of championing fashion as a force for social change.
One can only hope that Enninful’s appointment is not a mere blip, but a move in the right direction on a long road to diversity for the global brand.

How cinema stigmatises mental illness
That depictions of “madness” have been dominated by horror films is revealing of the film industry’s historic insensitivity about mental health, writes Arwa Haider.
You don’t have to be ‘mad’ to be in the movies – but the film industry has generally shown a shaky vision
of mental health. It’s not that cinema evades ‘taboo’ themes here; it’s more that it tends to swing wildly
from sentimentality to sensationalism. Which means that the perspective of Mad to Be Normal, a 1960s-set
biopic of Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing, just out on video on demand (VoD), feels intriguingly new. David
 Tennant stars as Laing: a complex and charismatic figure, who earned fame for his radical, empathetic
treatment of mental illness.
The real-life Laing was sharply quotable (he described insanity as “a perfectly rational adjustment to an
insane world”) and counter-cultural (he argued that traditional society was “driving our children mad”; he
recommended LSD for his adult patients). He also fought personal demons including alcoholism and
 depression. Tennant’s onscreen Laing is impressively joined by Elisabeth Moss, Gabriel Byrne and Michael
Gambon. Still, mainstream cinema struggles with a mental health ‘hero; Mad to Be Normal’s trailer booms:
“To some he’s certifiable… To others he’s a saint”.
Meanwhile on the small screen, there’s a feverish buzz around the imminent Netflix series Maniac (based
on the Norwegian psych ward-set drama of the same name). In the glossy and trippy US show, Emma Stone
 and Jonah Hill star as strangers undergoing a mysterious drug trial that claims to resolve mental health
issues; “It’s not therapy – it’s science,” Maniac’s eerie Dr. Mantleray (Justin Theroux) tells his patients.
Stone explained to Elle magazine:
“The thing I liked about Maniac was that it’s about people who have their own internal struggles and are
trying to fix them with a pill. But you see over the course of the show that human connection and love is
 really the only thing that gets us through life.”
So creative drama is drawn to the complexity and fragility of the mind – but mainstream entertainment still
demands a snappy fix. And the definition of ‘insanity’ is inherently problematic; it’s regarded as an
outmoded medical term. Dr. Ryan Howes writes in ‘Psychology Today’ that “it’s informed by medical
health professionals, but the term today is primarily legal, not psychological” and cites the Law.com
 definition: “mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality,
cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behaviour.”
Yet our mainstream perceptions of ‘madness’ are still fixated with movie scenes – much more emphatically,
in fact, than the novels or memoirs on which they might be based. A classic film like One Flew Over the
Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) seals the impression of a soul-destroying psychiatric asylum, where livewire convict
 RP McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) feigns insanity to escape prison labour – yet is ultimately crushed by the
system. The dramatic depiction of patient treatment, particularly its brutal electroconvulsive therapy
sequences, had far-reaching impact. In 2011, The Telegraph went so far as to say that the film was
responsible for “irreparably tarnishing the image of ECT… It also catalysed the development of more
effective anti-psychotic drugs that allowed patients to… live , more normal lives.” [...]

Questão 3 305398UnB 2018/1
 Guillermo del Toros’s The Shape of Water is the
latest meeting of the whimsical and the grotesque. The plot
unfolds as follows: in the 1950s, Elisa is a cleaner at a military
 research laboratory, who happens also to be mute, which places
her among other minorities without a say: there is her
African-American colleague Zelda and her neighbour, the artist
 Giles, who is gay. The screenplay brings together the
disenfranchised to save a fellow outcast.
The amphibious monster kept captive at the lab
 doesn’t have a name, and his idea of a witty and humorous
conversation is to roar in your face. But Elisa takes a shine to
him. “When he looks at me, he doesn’t know what I lack or
 how I am incomplete.”
In this film watertight ideas fight for space with flawed
ones. It begins with a dream sequence in which Elisa’s
 apartment is submerged. When the scene is repeated later for
real, causing only a minor leak in the house below, the rational
mind has too many objections (the floor would collapse!) for
 the fantasy to survive. An amphibious humanoid with magic
powers we can believe, but a flooded apartment that is as good
as new one scene later doesn’t stand up. There are other
 discrepancies too — like the sophisticated CCTV system in
1962, or the creature’s ability to wipe away the bulletholes in
his own body, sealing up the wounds, ET-style.

Based on the text above, judge of following item.
Elisa, Zelda, Giles and the monster share a common feature: they have all been deprived of power and marginalized.

Germany prepares adaptation of the TV Series “Merlí”
“Merlí”, the new TV3 series produced by Nova Veranda, based on an original idea and script by Héctor Lozano, directed by Eduard Cortés and starring Francesc Orella, will soon arrive Germany. A deal selling rights to the “Merlí” format will allow German audiovisual group Beta to adapt the adventures of this peculiar philosophy teacher and his favorite pupils, the Peripatetics.
The series “Merlí” finished shooting its third and last season last week, and its plot revolves around philosophy professor Merlí Bergeron (Francesc Orella). Like a modern-day Aristotle, Merlí chooses a group of High School students whom he teaches to reflect upon and question all aspects of life. This atypical, multifaceted professor confounds everyone around him as he encourages his students to set goals and objectives, sometimes using questionable methods.
The series continues to reap huge international success and is now preparing its arrival in Germany hand-in-hand with Beta thanks to an agreement with its international distributor Lagardère Studios Distribution, a strategic partner for Nova Veranda’s parent company Boomerang TV. This is not the first time the series has crossed borders. It has already aired through Netflix in the Spanish-speaking U.S. and in Latin America as well as on Canal Plus France’s Cinema+ Famillie network.
In this most recent agreement, the Beta Group has acquired the rights to adapt “Merlí” for the German market. In Spain, Movistar+ acquired broadcast rights for the series, which airs on the platform. The series is available nationwide for all of the platform’s subscribers and can be seen in its original (Catalonian) version with Castillian subtitles. “Merlí” has also been acquired by ETB for the Basque Country, where it will be dubbed into Euskera.
