'Leto' Cannes Film Festival Premiere
May 9, 2018; Day two of the Cannes Film Festival was a total show with; Protests, Fights, and Parties
The traditional climbing of the steps was a political moment for the cast and producer of the Russian film Leto (Summer), in competition at the 71st Cannes Film Festival: its director, Krill Serebrennikov, has been under house arrest in Russia since August of last year due to charges of corruption.
During day two: the weather held, Critics' Week began, and a political statement erupted on the red carpet around the Russian film Leto. A sidebar of drama roiled the Croisette - the seemingly never-ending dispute over the rights of Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, scheduled to close the festival on May 19.
There were press conferences, attacks and counter-attacks and news of Gilliam being unwell in London - but planning to fly to Cannes as soon as possible. On the lighter side, the party cycle has begun. Cannes will always be Cannes.

About Cannes Film Festival
Since 1939, Cannes has been the city of cinema. The Cannes Film Festival is world famous, born of the combination of a unique location and the magic of cinema. The Cannes Film Festival is the largest international and unique showcase of cinematic art. Every year, for 12 days in May, the small city of Cannes in southern France turns into a meeting place for cinema's directors, actress, actors, etc. Plus the people who report on them. Important to mention that this film festival is not similar to the Oscars: Anyone could be able to submit a film, and every submission has the chance to be viewed by representatives of the international movie industry.
Artistically, it's an anything-goes film showcase that has launched the careers of directors like Quentin Tarantino and Steven Soderbergh. It boasts such diverse events as black-tie screenings and midnight movies on the beach, and it has grown into a fairly intricate system of main events, sidebars and awards.
