June 22: Day 3 of the Festival
The festival's third day kicked off under the heavy skies of Yokohama, but was bolstered by the light-hearted humor of the actors and directors who spent the day at the Aeon Cinema in Minato Mirai presenting their films and meeting with Japanese audiences, who always guarantee them a warm welcome.
On Saturday, it was over to Michel Ocelot (for Dilili in Paris), Louis-Julien Petit (for Invisibles), Lisa Azuelos and Thaïs Alessandrin (for Sweetheart), Antonin Baudry and François Civil (for The Wolf's Call), and Sébastien Marnier along with his producer Caroline Bonmarchand (for School's Out) to take their turn to enjoy meeting with Japanese spectators, first in the theater at Q&As held after each screening, then in an area reserved for autographs sessions, where they were showered with small gifts.
In the morning, Claude Lelouch headed out to Waseda University to lead a master class, which was punctuated by excerpts from the many films that have marked the director's long career. In the room during the event was a student who is not quite like any other, a certain Hirokazu Kore-Eda...
For the final day of the festival, it will be the turn of Nadav Lapid (Synonyms), Judith Davis (Whatever Happened to my Revolution), and Nils Tavernier (The Ideal Palace) to meet with audiences for the very last Q&As and autograph sessions of this 27th edition of the festival.
