Michel Hazanavicius (Redoubtable), Léa Mysius (Ava), Barbet Schroeder (The Venerable W.), Laurent Cantet (The Workshop), and Emmanuel Gras (Makala) will thus make the trip to present their films in Mexican premieres in the stunning city of Morelia, a magnificent example of colonial architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
This year's festival will be an occasion for audiences to discover a world premiere screening, organized with UniFrance support, of Michel Hazanavicius: Histoire de cinéma(s), a documentary on the French filmmaker directed by Christophe d'Yvoire and Jean-Pierre Lavoignat, in which Hazanavicius shares his views on cinema in general, and his own films in particular.
Furthermore, Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, another guest at the festival, will be able to speak to audiences in his native tongue about his film BPM (Beats Per Minute), which is programmed at the festival. Each year the Morelia festival presents a retrospective of films from the most recent Cannes International Critics' Week as well as a selection of short films made by students at the Gobelins Film School.
Morelia 2017 will also be marked by the presence of Charles Tesson (director of
Cannes International Critics' Week) as a jury member; Jean-Pierre Garcia, a film critic, art historian, and founder of the Amiens Film Festival; and Edouard Waintrop, director of the Cannes Directors' Fortnight, who will present a special program this year devoted to Spanish anarchist cinema.
