KINO takes a sneak peak at the 69th Cannes Film Festival. To our delight, there’s a German film in the running for the top prize.- Toni Erdmann by Maren Ade. Ade is the first female German director to get a shot at the Palme d’Or!
Matt Damon stars in two of the 21 films competing at the world's oldest film festival, and Ai Weiwei is running against George Clooney and Alexander Payne. Here are more highlights from the glamorous event's program.
A year after Maren Ade's "Toni Erdmann" took Cannes by storm, the world's most important film festival is paying closer attention to German cinema than it has in a long time - including Diane Kruger's first German film.
Maren Ade can now hope to pick up the best foreign film award for her prize-winning surprise Cannes hit Toni Erdmann. But the competition from Denmark and Iran looks tough.
The Palme d'Or is considered to be the most prestigious award in the film industry. A total of 19 directors are competing this year for the award for best film. But like the rest of the world, Cannes is in shock.
