A committed Palme, Social.
“The movie carries many traditions, one of which is to present a protest cinema, cinema that highlights the people against the powerful, j hope that this tradition will continue, told Ken Loach on stage. We are approaching times of despair, the extreme right can enjoy. So we need to say anything else is possible. Another world is possible and necessary. “
” You’re the clit! “
Perhaps THE sentence of the closing ceremony of the festival … and even in general. Both a Divine Worship replica Houda Benyamina and the interjection of his Franco-Moroccan director Edward Waintrop, which selected the film to the Fortnight. A first feature punch, crowned with the Golden Camera, and a generational and female portrait on the outskirts, often compared to La Haine .

Everything is there: liberalism and globalization (as in I, Daniel Blake ), gender ( Vertical Stay, Miss ), Romania as decor ( Sieranevada , Bachelor ), plus a extraordinary woman portrait ( divine ).
