Cannes Film Festival added more films to the lineup for the 75th edition of the festival, taking place May 17 to May 28.
New films added to the Competition lineup include Le otto montagne by Charlotte Vandermeersch, Felix Van Groeningen; Un petit frère by Léonor Serraille; and Tourment sur les îles by Albert Serra. New films in Un Certain Regard are Plus que jamais by Emily Atef; Mediterranean Fever by Maha Haj; Le bleu du caftan by Maryam Touzani; and Harka by Lotfy Nathan.
The official poster is inspired by Peter Weir and Andrew Niccol’s The Truman Show (1998) starring Jim Carrey. “Peter Weir and Andrew Niccol’s The Truman Show (1998) is a modern reflection of Plato’s cave and the decisive scene urges viewers to not only experience the border between reality and its representation but to ponder the power of fiction, between manipulation and catharsis. Just as Truman escapes falsehood as he rises, the Festival, with its famous ascending red carpet, offers viewers the truth of the artists when they enter the theater.”
