Cannes 2009 Producer’s Patch: MK2

This year Mk2 bring Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’s Dog tooth and Mathias Gokalp’s Nothing Personal in the sidebars and they have Abdellatif Kechiche’s next (Black Venus) in production (the director gave us brilliant The Secret of the Grain in 2007/08) and they also have Patrice Chereau’s long awaited film – Persecution starring names like Romain Duris and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Producer's Patch IONCINEMA.com

Whenever I watch my Charlie Chaplin films on disc it is the MK2 logo that I see before I pull out the title from the DVD shelf. A staple in the French cinema their library is filled with auteurs – including last year’s Cannes presented Paranoid Park (Van Sant), Zhang Ke Jia’s 24 City and Belge director Dominique Abel’s Rumba. This year Mk2 bring Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’s Dog tooth and Mathias Gokalp’s Nothing Personal in the sidebars and they have Abdellatif Kechiche’s next (Black Venus) in production (the director gave us brilliant The Secret of the Grain in 2007/08) and they also have Patrice Chereau’s long awaited film – Persecution starring names like Romain Duris and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
