Palme d’Or for Jacques Audiard

24. May 2015

One of our favourite auteurs whom we paid homage in a 2011 Respect retrospective Jacques Audiard was awarded Palme d’Or for his new film Dheepan.

Jacques Audiard started to direct films in 1990s and became one of the leading voices in French cinema. Two of his previous films have been already awarded in Cannes: A Self Made Hero for Best Screenplay in 1996 and A Prophet with Gran Prix in 2009.

Dheepan should be distributed in Slovakia later this year.
