Top 150 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2020: #95. Cosmogonie – Vincent Paronnaud

French director Vincent Paronnaud is best known as an animator, having co-directed two films with Marjane Satrapi. The two parted ways following 2011’s Chicken with Plums and Paronnaud returns with his solo, live-action effort, Cosmogony (his 2009 title Villemolle 81 was released under the pseudonym Winshluss). Paronnaud’s latest features Lucie Debay (King of the Belgians, 2019) and Arieh Worthalter (Girl, 2018), produced by Alexandre Perrier and Benoit Roland, and is lensed by Joachim Philippe. Paronnaud competed in Cannes with Persepolis, which took home the Jury Prize in 2007. 2011’s Chicken with Plums competed in Venice. Paronnaud is also collecting funding for his next animated film he’s developing with Alexis Ducord, Dans la forêt sombre et mystérieuse.
