Kornél Mundruczó’s film “White God” earned rave reviews and won the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes in 2014. Now, the Hungarian filmmaker is returning to the festival with “Jupiter’s Moon” (“Jupiter holdja”), which will premiere at competition this Friday, May 19.
“Jupiter’s Moon” follows Aryan, a young immigrant who gets shot while attempting to cross the border. He gets thrown into a refugee camp where he mysteriously heals his wounds and discovers that he can levitate. He escapes the camp with the help of a doctor, and embarks on a search for his father, while on the run from the authorities.
There are 19 films competing for the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year, including Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,” Lynne Ramsay’s “You were Never Really Here,” Joshua and Ben Safdie’s “Good Time,” Yorgos Lanthimos’s “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” and Sergei Loznitsa’s “A Gentle Creature.” Check out the first trailer for “Jupiter’s Moon” below.
