Cannes’ Critics’ Week Unveil Selection of Labeled Films, Shorts

While the Official Selection of the Cannes Film Festival was announced yesterday, Critics Week, the strand dedicated to first and second films which traditionally runs parallel to the fest, has unveiled a list of features and shorts that will get the “2020 Semaine de la Critique” label.

Charles Tesson, the artistic director of Critics’ Week, said the strand will be collaborating with the Angouleme film fest, exhibitors and the French cinematheque during the next few months to turn the spotlight on these emerging filmmakers in the absence of a physical festival.The “tailored-made” program crafted by Critics’ Week will include local world premieres for the labeled French films during the Angouleme festival under a section called “La Semaine de la Critique carte blanche.

“Skies of Lebanon” stars Alba Rohrwacher as a young Swiss woman who falls in love with a Lebanese man during the war in 1975. Sold by Charades, “Skies of Lebanon” weaves animation and live action. Tesson said the film was both poetic and political, and told a beautiful, yet heart-wrenching love story.
