Official poster for the 69th Festival de Cannes
Parue leThe official poster for the 69th Festival de Cannes, taking place from 11 to 22 May and presided over by Australian director George Miller, was designed using stills from Jean-Luc Godard's film Contempt.
It's all there. The steps, the sea, the horizon: a man's ascent towards his dream, in a warm Mediterranean light that turns to gold. As an image it is reminiscent of a timeless quote used at the beginning of Contempt: "Cinema replaces our gaze with a world in harmony with our desires”.
