Godard, Greenaway, Pera Portmanteau Pic to Close Critics’ Week

'3X3D' explores impact of 3D on cinema, audiences

PARIS — Cannes’ Critics’ Week will close on a humor-filled, experimental note with the screening of “3X3D,” a portmanteau pic comprising three shorts helmed by Jean-Luc Godard, Peter Greenaway and Edgar Pera.

Set against the backdrop of 2,000-year-old Portuguese city Guimaraes, the three shorts — Greenaway’s “Just in Time,” Godard’s “The Three Disasters” and Pera’s “Cinesapiens” — explore 3D and question its evolution within the film world, and its impact on audiences’ perceptions.

“Time” takes a look at the layering of images; “Disasters” centers on the history of 3D, which the fest says “could be the premise of (Godard’s) next film”; while “Cinesapiens” playfully explores the history of cinema.

Pic was produced by Portuguese producer Rodrigo Areias. Urban Distribution Intl. handles international sales and will distribute in France.

The Euro-centric 52nd Critics’ Week edition, helmed by artistic director Charles Tesson, will kick off with Katell Quillevere’s drama “Suzanne” on May 16 and closes on May 24.
