FRANCE24, 18 May 2022
The 75th Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Tuesday with a zombie-themed tribute to film-making by French director Michel Hazanavicius as the movie world returned to the Riviera hoping to beathe new life into an industry crippled by the pandemic. The curtain-raiser was preceded by a video address from Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelensky, who called for "a new Chaplin" to confront the world's dictators. FRANCE 24's Juliette Montilly and Nina Masson report.
