Kult: World leaders unleashed at Cannes Film Festival - HVG.hu

As expected, this year's chairman of the Cannes Film Festival jury, Alejandro González Iñárritu, was not polite when it came to the burning issues of the world.

Four-time Oscar-winning filmmaker says rhetoric about immigration, such as building walls, could lead to another world war. He called stupid ignorance a primary problem.

This was said before director Jim Jarmusch's premiere of The Dead Don't Die. It was a given, as the grotesque, humorous film follows the socio-critical tradition of zombie films.

Iñárritu said he is not a politician, but an artist who tells what he thinks is right in his work. He also directed the movie, "Babel," about how random events connect random people on Earth.

It is not far from the Cannes Film Festival to embrace public affairs. For example, the 2018 festival is devoted to the issue of & nbsp; gender inequality & nbsp;

Thierry Frémaux, the artistic director of the Cannes festival, has defended himself after petitioning the internet to ask organizers not to honor "racist, homophobic and gendarmerie" Alain Delont with the Honorable Golden Palm during a rally on Tuesday. According to the festival director, the work of the French world star should be distinguished from his opinion.

Following the works of Miklós Jancsó Poor Peoples, Károly Makk Love and Zoltán Fábri Carousel, this year, for the fourth time, the Cannes Classics, the official program of the Cannes Film Festival, selected the Hungarian film classics restored by the Hungarian National Film Fund. A new trailer was made for the witness, we'll show.
