Monia Chokri’s La Femme De Mon Frère | 2019 Cannes Film Festival

After dealing with separation necessity in her award-winning short Quelqu’un d’extraordinaire (2013), Monia Chokri‘s deals in separation anxiety with La Femme de mon frère (A Brother’s Love). It’s almost a narrative in itself and fitting that a new Cannes Film Festival moment was created when the filmmaker who began her cinema life as an actress in the Un Certain Regard section in Xavier Dolan’s les amours imaginaires returns to the same section and same Debussy theatre for the launch of her directing career with Dolan (who you’ll see saluted in the video) also in attendance.
