5 Films to Watch at the Pan-African Film Festival of Cannes | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The 10th edition of the International Pan-African film festival in Cannes, France goes from April 17-21. If you’re lucky enough to attend, here are five films on our radar. Dialemi – Elle s’amuse (My Love: She’s having fun) by Gabonese director Nadine Otsobogo is a bit of magic realism. A sculptor pounds away at a stone bust in his seaside home, where he lives alone. A mysterious woman appears, who the sculptor’s been waiting for.

Cannes Review: Matthias Schoenaerts And Diane Kruger Shine In Alice Winocour's 'Disorder'

Cannes Review:  Matthias Schoenaerts And Diane Kruger Shine In Alice Winocour's 'Disorder' | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

A compact, effective, if low-key film that takes an interestingly counterintuitive approach to its blending of arthouse and genre elements, Alice Winocour's "Disorder" (which will be its title in the U.S. where its French name "Maryland" might suggest a light comedy involving rival crabcake recipes) is a small but polished find. Starring an entirely convincing Matthias Schoenaerts and a delicately understated Diane Kruger, the film moves in the opposite direction to many hybrids, starting out as a more formally adventurous exercise in empathy for a character suffering from a collection of symptoms that suggest Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but switching gear in its second half to take on the form of a genre thriller. Perhaps surprisingly, while a certain amount of the nuance is lost or left unresolved by this shift, it perhaps is the stronger film in those latter home-invasion sections, where Winocour shows a very sure, swift hand for rhythm and tension building that would, in a just world, have Hollywood calling.

Tarantino Tells Cannes Digital Screenings Have Killed Cinema (Videos)

Tarantino Tells Cannes Digital Screenings Have Killed Cinema (Videos) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Screening films in digital is like forcing audiences to watch television in public, cult director Quentin Tarantino told the Cannes film festival on Friday, adding that the lush 35-millimetre cinema he grew up with was “dead”. Tarantino is not competing in this year’s event, but he spoke to journalists and film critics before a 35mm screening of his hit “Pulp Fiction” on the beach on Friday night. Tarantino said “Digital projections, that’s just television in public.”

Selfish Giant director becomes toast of Cannes | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

There may be no British film in the main competition for the Palme D'Or this year, but that has not stopped a Yorkshirewoman from becoming the toast of Cannes. Clio Barnard's film The Selfish Giant has already been described as "hauntingly perfect" and "jaggedly moving" by critics as it premieres in the Director's Fortnight section of the film festival, with the director herself hailed as a significant new voice in British cinema.
