‘Bulls’ joins lineup of Cannes films

Some restored pics to screen on digital HD

Kenneth Bowser’s 2002 documentary about the counterculture filmmakers that emerged during the late 1960s and ’70s to rock the foundations of Hollywood, “Easy Riders, Raging Bulls,” is among several films that have been added to the upcoming Cannes Film Festival’s official selection.

The film will play May 20 in the Special Screenings section as part of a lineup of restored films and documentaries by filmmakers including Errol Morris, Wim Wenders, Richard Schickel, Nanni Moretti and Rithy Panh.

Festgoers will also be able to watch digital HD projections of Michael Curtiz’s “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and Jerry Schatzberg’s “The Scarecrow” in the section being screened at the Salle Bunuel theater.

With the exception of the out-of-competition docu “Lester James Peries, Cineaste d’un Autre Temps” by Julien Plantureux, all are special screenings of officially selected films.

“Easy Riders, Raging Bulls,” based on the eponymous bestselling book, is one of a series of cinema-themed docus. Another section is devoted to Federico Fellini, to coincide with the fest’s retrospective on the Italo helmer.

Restored feature films shown in 35mm include Luis Bunuel’s “Un Chien Andalou,” Ettore Scola’s “C’Eravamo Tanti Amati” and Jean Renoir’s “La Marseillaise.”
