13 de diciembre de 2018

Thierry Frémaux, director of the Cannes Festival and responsible for the Cannes Festival Film Week, in the context of Ventana Sur, programmed a selection of the most outstanding elements of the 71st edition for the Gaumont Cinema theater in Buenos Aires.

He explains that the event allows professionals to work on the future of cinema and help directors and producers, but "we also wanted to take care of the audience in Buenos Aires and present films in that city, films from Cannes, such as the winner of the Golden Palm, because Cannes is an art festival. It is a pleasure to be here with the audience of Buenos Aires for the tenth year”.

During his talk El Presente del Cine, he added that there must be "more and more women directors, but not only directors, also scriptwriters and producers," being an important evolution and vision of the film industry.

The activities and screenings include the film Shoplifters from Kore-eda Shirokazu, a master class with the guest of honor, the actor Tim Roth; the movie Clímax by Gaspar Noé, with a special presentation of the director. Screening of the films Capharnaum by Nadine Labaki, Burning by Lee Chang-dong, Dogman by Matteo Garrone and Border by Ali Abbasi. There will also be a special screening of Reservoir Dogs by Quentin Tarantino.
