While the Cannes Film Festival, which relishes its reputation as a festival with the clout to insist on world premieres for most of the films in its program, is mainly about the “new”, a section of the Festival will again be devoted to relishing classic films. Cannes Classics has, since 2004, presented a program of classic titles that are ripe for reappraisal. This year is no different with the following 14 feature films to be screened at special event screenings around the French Riviera town: A TRIP TO THE MOON (Georges Méliès, France, 1902); A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (Stanley Kubrick, US/UK, 1971); THE MACHINE TO KILL BAD PEOPLE (Roberto Rossellini, Italy, 1952); A BRONX TALE (Robert De Niro, 1993); THE CONFORMIST (Bernardo Bertolucci, Italy, 1970); SUGAR CANE ALLEY (Euzhan Palcy, France, 1983); PUZZLE OF A DOWNFALL CHILD (Jerry Schatzberg, USA, 1970); THE LAW OF THE BORDER (Lufti O. Akad, Turkey, 1966); NO MAN’S LAND (Victor Trivas, Germany, 1931); THE CHILDREN OF PARADISE (Marcel Carné, France, 1945); DESPAIR (Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Germany, 1978); THE SAVAGE (Jean-Paul Rappeneau, France, 1975); CHRONICLE OF A SUMMER (Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin, France, 1960) and THE ASSASIN (Elio Petri, Italy, 1961).
