Claude Lanzmann’s docu-feature ‘Injustes’ plays out of competition

Jim Jarmusch’s vampire romance “Only Lovers Left Alive” has been added to the Cannes competition, completing this year’s lineup, the Cannes Festival announced Friday.

Tipped as a competition contender, and also written by Jarmusch, “Alive” stars Tom Hiddleston as a vampire underground musician whose down the centuries relationship with his lover (Tilda Swinton) is threatened by his lover’s little sister (Mia Wasikowska). Jeremy Thomas’ London-based Recorded Picture Company produced with Germany’s Pandora Filmproduktion.

The Cannes Festival has also slotted “Le Dernier des injustes,” a Holocaust docu-feature from France’s Claude Lanzmann (“Shoah”) into an out-of-competition berth.

The Cannes Festuval has also added three films to Un Certain Regard: Hiner Saleem’s “My Sweet Pepperland,” set on the border between Turkey and Iraq, Katrin Gebbe’s first feature “Tore Tanzt,” and Argentine Lucia Puenzo’s “Wakolda,” about a former nazi who seeks refuge in a village in Patagonia.
