2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Mahamat-Saleh Haroun’s Grisgris

#11. Mahamat-Saleh Haroun’s Grisgris

Gist: It will tell the story of a 25-year-old man with a paralyzed leg who dreams of becoming a dancer, and starts to work for a gang of petrol smugglers. Starring Soulémane Démé, Mariam Monory, Cyril Guei and Marius Yelolo.

Prediction: Having shown 2002’s Our Father (Directors’ Fortnight) or the 2010 Jury Prize winning A Screaming Man, on the odd years where the filmmaker doesn’t show up on the Croisette, he ends up on the Lido – this won’t be the case for his latest. Set for an August release in France, a long lead world premiere is definitely in the cards. This is a Main Comp entry folks.
