Diegues to chair Camera d’Or jury

Kudo goes to best first film at Cannes

MADRID Brazilian hyphenate Carlos “Caca” Diegues (“Bye, Bye Brazil,” “God is Brazilian”) will chair the jury of Cannes’ Camera d’Or, an award for the best first film in official selection, Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week.

Diegues leaped to fame co-directing the 1962 neo-realist “Cinco vezes favela,” which turned him into a young star of Brazil’s Cinema Novo.

Via his production shingle, Luz Magica, Diegues also produced “Cinco x Favela: Now by Ourselves,” which received a Special Screening at Cannes last year.

The Camera d’Or will be awarded during Cannes’ closing ceremony on May 27.
