English version available soon
The Cannes Festival doesn't just let feature films get their shot at glory. The short film jury is headed by Nikita Mikhalkov (Outomlionnye Solntsem (Burnt by the Sun), Jury Grand Prix at Cannes in 1994), composed of actress Marisa Paredes, actress-director Nicole Garcia and directors Nuri Bilge Ceylan and Pablo Trapero. Ten short films are up for the chance of winning a Palme d'Or or a Jury Prize.
This year France is represented by two shorts: Nicolas Salis' La Derniere Minute (The Last Minute), about the "temporality" of two twins, and Gérard mon Amour (Gérard My Love), co-directed by Madeleine André and Rosa Olmos about a love letter. Other European films in the running for the prize include the Belgian director Jonas Geirnart's animated short, Flatlife on the daily life of four neighbours; Trafic from the Romanian Catalin Mitulescu; Der Schwimmer (The Swimmer) from German Klaus Huettmann; and Thinning the Herd from the Dane Rie Rasmussen.
The American continent is represented by Michelange Quay's The Gospel of the Creole Pig about a slum in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Accordion, Canadian director Michèle Cournoyer's film about a woman who lets herself go in the pleasures of the Internet; and finally, Quimera, directed by the Brazilian Eryk Rocha, son of director Glauber Rocha, that takes the viewer into a journey mixing contemporary art and cinema. Finally, David Rittey's Closer, a short film that uses silence, represents New Zealand in the competition.
