CANNES '08 | Skolimoski's "Four Nights" Leads Fortnight; Fest Roster Unveiled

Jerzi Skolimoski‘s “Four Nights With Anna” will open the 40th Director’s Fortnight in Cannes. Organizers unveiled the entire roster for the annual independent sidebar to the Festival de Cannes, choosing thirty-three features for the 2008 festival. The event emerged amidst the tumult of 1968 when the fest was canceled in solidarity with striking French workers.
