The 75th Cannes Film Festival will open its doors on May 17 and big names are expected on the red carpet. To review its classics while waiting for the start of the festivities, France TV has decided to highlight, on its site, directors who have marked the history of the festival. Céline Sciamma, Claire Burger, Marie Amachoukeli, Marianne Tardieu, Laurence Ferreira Barbosa, Catherine Corsini, Jeanne Labrune, Danielle Arbib, Sonia Kronlund, Sandra Kogut and Chloé Zhao are thus all brought together in a collection entitled “When women seize cinema”. Eleven films from all walks of life, to the “vision of world that is both captivating and tender, spicy or funny, inspired and pensive” and all noticed in different Cannes selections, are therefore currently available for free access. Naissance des octopuses, the very beautiful adolescent initiatory story by Céline Sciamma which revealed Adèle Haenel, Party Girl, the six-handed production by Claire Burger, Marie Amachoukeli and Samuel Theis which won the Camera d’or, or Les Chansons que my brothers taught me, the first opus of the Grand Ouest trilogy by Chloé Zhao, are notably part of this fine selection.
