72nd Cannes Film Festival

Also this is a closing weekend for the 72nd Cannes Film FestivalThe Cannes Film Festival has decidedly gone for the ace of trumps in its choice of President of the Jury in this the 72nd year of the Festival. Obviously unfazed by its rival the Oscars it has chosen one of the most decorated directors in the recent history of the Oscars. Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu will serve as jury president.

The Cannes Film Festival is an annual film festival held in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including documentaries, from all around the world. Founded in 1946, the invitation-only festival is held annually (usually in May) at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès. The festival will be celebrating its 72nd year.

Monaco Modern’Art Gallery, in collaboration with the association Art & Environnement, presents on the occasion of Monaco Art Week (April 24-28, 2019) a selection of monumental paintings by Philippe Pastor together with an original installation of “The Burned Trees” sculptures. These sensitive pieces, conceived as a tribute to Nature, also denounce the current environmental issues, in the era of what some call the Anthropocene.
