Stars at Noon, de Claire Denis

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

It might sometimes frustrate their competitors, but you can’t help but respect them: Wild Bunch International are without doubt the stand-out sales agent in the domain of global auteur cinema, and the 75th Cannes Film Festival’s Marché du Film (running 17 - 25 May) is set to provide even more proof of this. The team directed by Vincent Maraval and steered by Eva Diederix have lined up an impressive 15 feature films which are scheduled to enjoy world premieres in the various sections on the Croisette.

by fellow French director Léa Mysius, which is due for presentation in the Directors’ Fortnight (and for which Mubi has just acquired the rights pertaining to North America, the UK, Ireland, Latin American and Turkey).

Standing tall among the new titles scheduled to be pre-sold at the Marché du Film are The Old Oak by English helmer Ken Loach (commencing shooting on Thursday), Jeanne du Barry by France’s Maïwenn (shooting this summer) - which stars the filmmaker herself (as a woman born as the illegitimate daughter of an impoverished seamstress in 1743 who nonetheless went on to rise through the Court of Louis XV to become his last official mistress), Johnny Depp (playing the sovereign), Louis Garrel, Pierre Richard and Noémie Lvovsky – but also Philippe Garrel’s The Plough (in production - news).

And that’s without forgetting films in post-production (Wild Bunch International are also selling Bac Films’ titles), including Other People’s Children by Rebecca Zlotowski, Saint-Omer by Alice Diop (article), Junkyard Dog by Jean-Baptiste Durand (article), Rascals by Jimmy Laporal-Trésor (article), Houria by Mounia Meddour (news), Mercy by Kim Chapiron, The Little Gang by Pierre Salvadori (news), Loving Memories by Guillaume Bureau (article), Blazing Neon by FGKO (article), Nightmare by Kjersti Helen Rasmussen, Heroic by David Zonana, and Mainstream by Gia Coppola.
