On the live Cannes
Cannes, day 2
Here is the menu of our Cannes special edition of the day:
Bacurau. After Aquarius, Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles film the fight of villagers of the Northeast of Brazil against an army of killers, in a furious dystopia.
Suede. Quentin Dupieux signs a sharp, and often hilarious, film about a lost quadra who turns serial killer by putting on a jacket.
Wretched. Through the eyes of a young BAC police officer recently transferred to Montfermeil, Ladj Ly draws the dark portrait of a neighborhood where conflicts and virilist demonstrations are commonplace.
John Carpenter (Photo Cyril Zannettacci, VU). At 71, the American filmmaker, master of terror, for the first time crowds the Croisette, celebrated by the gold carriage of the Directors' Fortnight.
Mati Diop. Marked by the films of her uncle Djibril Diop Mambéty, whom she admired, the young Franco-Senegalese filmmaker says she is proud but surprised to be in competition with Atlantic, his first feature film, about Senegal, those who stay and those who leave.
And also. The film lesson of the Minister of Culture Franck Riester; a small Checknews on the jury composition of the festival; and a column on the detection of precious metals near the Cannes beach.
The projections expected today. Atlantic from Mati Diop (Official Selection); Sorry we missed you Ken Loach (Official Selection); Being alive and knowing Alain Cavalier (Out of competition); beanpole Kantemir Balagov (Un certain regard); And then we danced by Levan Akin (Directors' Fortnight); A white, white day Hlynur Palmason (Critics' Week).
