Above: the poster for this year's Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in Cannes, created by Michel Welfringer, based on a photograph by Cécile Burban.
From the website:
"There are two diametrically opposed ways to consider this poster. Either we are watching a spectator making good his escape by way of the screen...a clean getaway...Or else this man is slipping into a shadow world as it represented in a certain cinema of 2014, serie noire... if the word hadn't already been patented. We will be showing both kinds this year and you will decide which you prefer. In any case, as this poster suggests, the films we are showing will usher you into a filmic dimension which, we hope, continues to be bigger than life…"
