Key Players in the 2012 Cannes Film Market: MK2

With three selected films in the Main Comp (Yousry Nasrallah’s After the Battle, Abbas Kiarostami’s Like Someone in Love, Walter Salles’ On the Road) and one in the Un Certain Regard section (Xavier Dolan’s Laurence Anyways) you could say that French sales/production/distribution company MK2 are spoiled this year. Where buyers might want to focus their attention is the film that wasn’t yet ready and is posed for a Venice showing in Olivier Assayas’ Something in the Air (see pic above).
