Morceaux de Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival innovates by allowing all spectators and film enthusiasts to discover on its site and in preview two documentaries selected at Cannes Classics which will then be broadcast by their respective channels.It is Morceaux de Cannes, a documentary by Emmanuel Barnault, produced from the archives of the INA, revealing famous or unseen images from the history of the Festival. The second film is Olivia de Havilland, the rebellious Daphné Baiwir, a sensitive portrait dedicated to this glorious figure of the golden age of Hollywood who also challenged the treatment reserved for actresses. She was also and above all, in 1965, the first woman president of the Jury at the Festival.Olivia de Havilland, rebellious by Daphné Baiwir (2021, 56min, France)

Olivia de Havilland

Of British origin, born in Japan, having grown up and made a career in the United States then settling in France, Olivia de Havilland is the most international of Hollywood stars. She was also the one who shook the face of Hollywood and studios with her winning lawsuit against Jack Warner when she was barely 26, allowing all of the cast to be suspended as they fought in WWII. to be able to renegotiate their contract. This "de Havilland law" makes it possible to relax the constraints that weighed on the actors under contract. She won two Academy Awards for Best Actress, in 1947 for To Each His Own (To Each His Own) by Mitchell Leisen and in 1950 for L'Héritière (The Heiress) by William Wyler. In 1965, she became the first president. of the Jury of the Cannes Film Festival, twenty years after its creation.Daphné Baiwir's admirable film says the actress as much as the exceptional woman that Olivia de Havilland was, her struggles, the distinction of her game, the great interviews she gave, the risks taken in her career, the choices she made. 'a life, too. It refers to an idea of ​​cinema which is moving away a little more each year but to which the passage of time gives more strength. Olivia de Havilland passed away in Paris on July 26, 2020. This film is the most beautiful of all ways to honor his memory.
Songs from Cannes by Emmanuel Barnault (2020, 52min, France)

At the Cannes Film Festival, we thought we had seen everything, read everything, heard everything, between glitter and noise in the corridors, scandals and censorship. And yet, Pieces de Cannes by Emmanuel Barnault, a great specialist in Italian and French cinema, convinces us of the contrary. The third planetary event (with the Olympic Games and the Football World Cup) only reveals its secrets sparingly, as its film bears witness to. The fruit of passionate research in the archives of the INA, these 52 minutes without interviews or voice-overs, link rare and some unknown sequences. Put together, they tell a surprising, original and warm story of the Festival. On the beach, at the corner of a street, in a restaurant or in the privacy of a hotel room, these forgotten archives bring together the greatest filmmakers, actresses and actors of the last seventy years, from Jean Cocteau to David Lynch, for an anthology of the history of the Festival. The best way to wait until the opening of the 74th edition!
