First of all, in the Main Competition or “Un Certain Regard” selections, data such as cinematic genre, age and sexual distribution of directors, as well as content and format, create a wider range than ever before. There are a number of successful films that cannot be weighed on the same scales, even absurd, let alone the difficulty of predicting, as both female directors and young artists whose debuts bring serious hopes to make up about a third of the charts.
NOT ON THE SAME BATCH
For example, Ken Loach master’s “Old Oak”, which we will watch today, and Ramata-Toulaye Sy’s sensitive film, “Banel&Adama”, which attracts attention with its poetic language and simple aesthetics, is the young female director from Senegal who grew up in the French school and is located at the other end of the spectrum. How can it be evaluated at the same time?
In this case, it would be the most realistic and objective attitude to take in the daily festival issues of Screen magazine, which are given free of charge, by the 12-member international special press jury, which evaluates the films nominated for the Golden Palm and is dominated by Anglo-Saxon critics.
