"Activists" like @carloshconde who attack director @brillante_ma are sad one-dimensional hypocrites


To expect every non-poor person to harbour feelings about poverty beyond "fascination" (and condemn them for that shortfall) is, itself, a form of hypocrisy. And that is exactly what certain "human rights activists" are, hypocrites...



Poverty is the subject of countless film makers' work. Do we expect every producer and director of movies about the poor to be bleeding-heart activists? That'd be just being a self-righteous prick.

Art is the outcome of inspiration. Whether that inspiration is motivated by an artist's "mere" fascination or deep empathy for his subject is beside the whole point of said artistry. One needs to be a bit more of a well-rounded person to understand that.
