PARIS — South Korean helmer Hong Sang-soo’s “Conte de cinema” was added to the Cannes Film Festival’s competition on Tuesday, making it the 26th in the lineup.
It’s the helmer’s second competition pic in as many years, following “Woman Is the Future of Man.”
The fest also announced three additions to its Un Certain Regard section. They are “Eli, Eli, Lema Sabachtani” by Shinji Aoyama; “Marock,” a first film by Laila Marrakchi; and Kohei Oguri’s “The Buried Forest,” which will be presented jointly by the official selection and Directors Fortnight.
Three special screenings have been added to the program. Jan Kounen’s docu “Darshan — l’etreinte” and excerpts from Jean-Luc Godard’s “Histoire(s) du cinema” will receive a special screening in the Salle Bunuel, while docu “Pele eterno” by Anibal Massaini Neto will unspool on the beach as part of the “Cinema de la Plage” program.
Fest runs May 11-22.
