Kate Winslet and the ‘Titanic’: ‘I was bullied at the time for the scene on the raft’
by Chiara Ugolini
The protagonists of the 1997 film, the third highest-grossing film in the history of cinema, are two very young twenty-year-old actors destined to become protagonists of the star system and win an Oscar, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. On the occasion of the return to theaters of ‘Titanic’, James Cameron, in an international press conference which was also attended by AGI, answered questions from the press. The first, inevitable, is the following: why bring back a film that everyone in the world has seen – at the cinema or on TV – (and even more than once)? And the answer is surprising, as is Cameron: the topic has never been as topical as today when, due to the rich countries that do not care enough about climate change, the world, like the Titanic, is heading against an iceberg. And the poor will pay the worst consequences.
‘Titanic’, the richest shipwreck in the history of cinema returns to theaters after 25 years

“If we think about the themes of the film – explains the director – the underlying themes of the ‘Titanic’, the rich and the poor, the haves and the have-nots, those who survive and those who die. It happened that among the people in third class, nearly all the men and about half the women and children died. Among those in first class, however, about half the men died, and nearly all the women and children survived, with only one or two exceptions.” “Well, now we’re facing another crisis, that of climate change. We’ve been warned for years, we see it coming straight at us, we can’t reverse it. It’s exactly like the damn iceberg. We’ll collide and guess who Will he suffer the most? The poor. Not the rich nations that caused it. It was the rich of the Titanic, their eagerness to get to New York, and the captain and owner of the steamship who listened to their rich’s pleas clientele to cause the shipwreck. And it was the poor who suffered, numerically, statistically”.
“Now the same thing is happening globally with climate change and all the other ecological disasters that are ahead of us – he continues – because the rich have stepped on the ship of human civilization. They are heading straight for that damn iceberg. And when we hit it, poor nations will suffer and the rich will get away with it because the rich always do. So is the issue as current as it was then? I’d say it’s more current than it’s ever been,” he adds.
