Cannes Film Festival 2019 Poster Honors French Filmmaker Agnès Varda

The full program of the Official Selection of the Cannes Festival will be presented on Thursday 18th. In the meantime today the official poster of the 72nd edition which will be held from May 14th to 25th has been published. The poster represents the decision of Thierry Fremaux and partners to honor the memory and career of the great Agnès Varda, who disappeared a few days ago at the age of 90. The photo portrays the director at the time of her debut, standing on the shoulders of a technician, while looking inside the camera on the beach of Sète, where she was shooting her first movie: La pointe courte, which was presented in Cannes in 1955.

“Like a manifesto, this photo from the set sums up everything about Agnès Varda: her passion, aplomb, and mischievousness. Ingredients of a free artist, forming a recipe she never stopped improving. Her 65 years of creativity and experimentation almost match the age of the Festival de Cannes, who celebrates each year visions which reveal, dare and rise higher. And who remains keen to remember.”
