Cannes Directors’ Fortnight 2017 Line-Up Led By Claire Denis, Abel Ferrera, Sean Baker… And Dave Bautista
via The Playlist

Savvy Cannes-goers know that while the Official Selection has some of the biggest hitters (and certainly has them this year) on the Croisette, the Directors’ Fortnight sidebar is often the home of some of the most daring and exciting cinema that any festival has to offer. Focused a little more on newer filmmakers (but not exclusively), recent years have seen the bow of excellent movies like “Divines,” “My Life As A Zucchini,” “Neruda,” “Green Room,” “Embrace Of The Serpent,” “Mustang,” “Arabian Nights,” “Girlhood” and “Whiplash” within the parallel selection.

A week on from the arrival of the main Cannes line-up, the Quinzaine Des Realisateurs has unveiled their new selection, and it’s another strong one. Things will kick off with a doozy: the legendary Claire Denis, the most notable absence from the Official Competition, with her comedy (!) “Un Beau Soleil Intérieur,” starring Juliette Binoche and Gerard Depardieu.

There’s also new films from luminaries Abel Ferrera and Philippe Garrel, the latest from “Tangerine” director Sean Baker with the Willem Dafoe-starring “The Florida Project,” “Mediterranea” director Jonas Carpignano returning with “A Ciambra,” and the traditional Sundance carry-over, albeit an unexpected one: the Dave Bautista-starring one-take dystopian actioner “Bushwick” (plus festival fave “Patty Cake$,” which closes the sidebar). There’s also Bruno Dumont’s electro-pop Joan Of Arc musical, the intriguing sounding Zambian movie “I Am Not A Witch,” and the Imogen Poots-starring “Mobile Homes,” plus the latest from “Songs That My Mother Taught Me” helmer Chloe Zhao.

Take a look at the full line-up below.

UN BEAU SOLEIL INTÉRIEUR – Claire Denis (opening film)
A CIAMBRA – Jonas Carpignano
ALIVE IN FRANCE – Abel Ferrara
L’AMANT D’UN JOUR – Philippe Garrel
BUSHWICK – Cary Murnion & Jonathan Milott
CUORI PURI – Roberto De Paolis
THE FLORIDA PROJECT – Sean Baker
FROST – Sharunas Bartas
I AM NOT A WITCH – Rungano Nyoni
JEANNETTE, L’ENFANCE DE JEANNE D’ARC – Bruno Dumont
L’INTRUSA – Leonardo Di Costanzo
LA DEFENSA DEL DRAGÓN – Natalia Santa
MARLINA SI PEMBUNUH DALAM EMPAT BABAK – Mouly Surya
MOBILE HOMES – Vladimir de Fontenay
NOTHINGWOOD – Sonia Kronlund
ÔTEX-MOI D’UN DOUTE – Carine Tardieu
THE RIDER – Chloe Zhao
WEST OF THE JORDAN RIVER (FIELD DIARY REVISITED) – Amos Gitai
PATTY CAKE$ – Geremy Jasper (closing)

Ruben Östlund’s ‘The Square’ & Roman Polanski’s ‘Based On A True Story’ Join Cannes Line-Up
via The Playlist

When the Cannes line-up was announced a few weeks back, Thierry Frémaux hinted, as is often the case, that a few slots remained to be filled in the line-up. And news has just dropped as to exactly what those films are. The only addition to the Competition selection (which may indicate that there are still one or two more to come) is “The Square,” the latest from Ruben Östlund, director of the brilliant “Force Majeure.” The film, which revolves around a piece of public performance art, is at least partly in English, and stars the great Elisabeth Moss (who’ll be doing the Cannes double with Jane Campion’s “Top Of The Lake: China Girl”) and Dominic West, and instantly becomes one of the most anticipated of the festival. It marks a promotion for Östlund, whose last film was in the Un Certain Regard section.

Out of competition will be “Based On A True Story,” the latest from veteran director (and convicted sex criminal) Roman Polanski, which stars Eva Green and Polanski’s wife Emmanuelle Seigner — the film’s a psychological thriller of some kind. Meanwhile, “River Road” director Li Ruijun joins the Un Certain Regard line-up with “Walking Past The Future,” as will Argentinean director Santiago Mitre (who won Critics’ Week in 2015 with “Paulina”) with “The Summit” starring Ricardo Darín and Christian Slater; while a new documentary by Barbet Schroeder, “The Venerable W,” looking at Islamophobia in Burma, will get a Special Screening.

Actor-director Eric Caravaca will also get a special screening of his second feature, entitled “Carre 35;” while animated family comedy “Zombillenium,” an adaptation of a French comic book, will be a “Children’s Screening.”

That sentence is at once SEO-fishing, angry, and dismissive.
