yeah, this goes off of my complaints about the recent criticism toward Criterion Collection (granted, surely a company mostly made up of middle-aged white guys) not being diverse enough when really that complaint was about them lacking a specific kind of diversity: films made by black americans. as opposed to the truckloads of movies they've put out that are literally made by people all over the world...
I think it's too much to ask of us (the royal "us") right now for our media to have any kind of cultural focus outside of the States. all I know is that I get quite a boost from learning about art that came from elsewhere... or, sh*t, even just watching soccer and learning about some small European city I've never heard of. I don't think a lot of people want to wander that far...
