Cannes Film Festival

Incredible time at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It was a last minute decision to go and I am so glad I went. 

Wonderful time catching up with my filmmaker friends from around the world and a chance to connect with so many new people who enjoy film and are passionate to bring their own projects to screens.

I made it to two premieres at the Lumiere: Idol by Sam Levinson and Rapito (Kidnapped) by Marco Bellocchio.

Rapito was my favourite film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It tells a story of Edgardo Mortara, a child who was born into a Jewish family before being kidnapped by the Church by the order of the Pope to be Christianised in the 19th century. Based on a true devastating story against a beautiful backdrop of Italian landscapes and architecture.

As per usual I managed to watch only a handful of films and left with a long list of films the releases of which I am eagerly awaiting.
