Cannes 2013 Director's Fortnight Includes Films By Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jim Mickle, Anurag Kashyap
Time will tell, but as of now, The Cannes Director's Fortnight program this year looks like a more well-rounded, eccentric group of films than the competition. It's a lineup where, for example, Jim Mickle's Sundance selected cannibalism tale We Are What We Are plays alongside the latest from The Sorrow and the Pity director Marcel Ophuls. It also ranges from old masters like Alejandro Jordorowsky, presenting his new autobiographical film, The Dance of Reality to new genre filmmakers like Jeremy Saulnier (Murder Party) who is showing Blue Ruin. It also includes a number of Fortnight alumni, notably Gangs of Wasseypur director Anurag Kashyap, who will premiere his new film Ugly, a thriller set in Mumbai. Here is the full lineup:
