‘Titane’, by Julia Ducournau, revolutionizes the Cannes Film Festival
In a statement this Tuesday, the contest explained that ‘Titane’, this year’s Palme d’Or in Cannes (France), “speaks of the reunion of a father with his son who disappeared ten years ago, after a series of unexplained crimes. “.
In turn, the Norwegian Tommy Wirkola returns to Sitges with ‘The trip’, a black comedy about “a marriage in crisis who decides to escape one weekend to a cabin in the woods and look for an opportunity to start from scratch. So soon as the other is dead. “
In addition, ‘The frozen blood’ will premiere its first episode in Sitges: it is a BBC series that can be seen on Movistar + in October, interpreted by Colin Farrell and Jack O’Connell, in adaptation of a 19th century novel “about a doctor in crisis who embarks on a whaler where he will meet a psycho-killer “.
The festival has summarized that its program by sections announced so far contains a total of 126 titles “with a female gaze that is the protagonist of the genre and the approach to a debate on the delimitation of content and new forms of fantasy”.
