Annie Silverstein’s Bull | 2019 Cannes Film Festival

Not officially opening the section, but nonetheless the first film out of the Un Certain Regard gate, Annie Silverstein presented her directorial debut Bull at the Debussy this morning — a second trip for the filmmaker in Cannes where she won the the Cinéfondation jury award for the short “Skunk” back in 2014. Silverstein explores the crux point of making morally right and wrong choices/decisions with an unlikely pairing of dual lost souls (mix of professional and non-professional in Rob Morgan Amber Havard) and thematically addresses redemption and takes stock of true ownership of one’s destiny sans artifice. Here is the presentation footage:
