2022 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 10 – Albert Serra’s Pacifiction

Another filmmaker who was invited to his first Palme d’Or race, Albert Serra has been to the Croisette first in the Directors’ Fortnight with Honor de cavalleria (2006) and El cant dels ocells (2008), and then showcased The Death of Louis XIV (out of Comp) and Liberte (Un Certain Regard). Pacifiction was a surprise last minute addition to the comp – it stars Benoît Magimel in contemporary French Polynesia.
