Cannes: Philippe Garrel’s ‘In the Shadow of Women’ to Open Directors’ Fortnight

Philippe Garrel’s “In the Shadow of Women” has been chosen to open the Directors’ Fortnight sidebar on May 14 at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

Clotilde Courau, Stanislas Merhar and Lena Paugam star in Garrel’s 25th feature, a tale of romantic betrayal centered around two impoverished documentary filmmakers adrift in modern-day Paris. Wild Bunch is selling the film internationally.

The selection marks a homecoming of sorts for the French auteur, who appeared in the Fortnight’s very first edition in 1969 with his film “The Virgin’s Bed.” Garrel was most recently on the Croisette with his 2008 competition entry “Frontier of Dawn.” His two previous films, “A Burning Hot Summer” (2011) and “Jealousy” (2013), premiered in competition at the Venice Film Festival.

The Directors’ Fortnight, now in its 47th year, was founded by the Societe des Realisateurs du Films as an independent alternative to the festival’s official selection. The full program for the 2015 edition will be announced on April 21, and the sidebar will run May 14-24.
