Cannes Adds Bernard-Henri Levy’s ‘Peshmerga’ to Official Selection

The Cannes festival has added French philosopher Bernard Henri Levy’s “Peshmerga” to Official Selection, as a special screening.

“This film, which we have just discovered, offers a close-up look at the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters. With just a small team in tow, the director traveled 1,000 km along the Iraqi frontier, from South to North, filming war situations, landscapes and the faces of men and women rarely seen in the wider world,” Cannes said in a statement.

The 92-minute picture will be given a screening at 3pm on Friday May 20 in the Salle Bazin. An additional screening on Saturday Mat 21 will be added if necessary.
