Cannes Classics Programs Orson Welles, Hitchcock Doc, Guest of Honor Costa-Gavras

Cannes Classics Programs Orson Welles, Hitchcock Doc, Guest of Honor Costa-Gavras

This year’s Cannes Classics Guest of Honor will be legendary Greek director Costa-Gavras, who won the Palme in 1982 for “Missing” and will participate in a screening of 1969 Jury Prize winner “Z.”

Meanwhile Cannes Classics will also celebrate centennials of Ingrid Bergman and Orson Welles. In partnership with Warner Bros., Cannes will screen three 4K Welles restorations, including “Citizen Kane” and “The Lady From Shanghai.” Two new Welles docs will also bow, as will Kent Jones’ highly anticipated documentary “Hitchcock/Truffaut.”

Other highlights include a tribute to the late Manoel de Oliveira, whose previously unseen 1982 film “Visita ou Memórias e Confissões” will play, a tribute to the Lumière brothers, as well as an evening with Barbet Schroeder and his films “More” (1969) and “Amnesia” (2015) and, as always, plenty of open-air screenings.

Restored prints, including films from Visconti, Kurosawa and Malle, will inevitably be distributed in theaters, on DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD. Features and documentaries at Cannes Classics will be screened in 35mm, DCP 2K or 4K at the Buñuel, Salle du Soixantième or on the beach.
