As part of Colcoa’s Focus on Filmmakers’ series, Hazanavicius – who currently has a couple projects in the U.S. — will present his latest film, the Cannes-competition player “The Search,” as well as his 2006 hit comedy “Oss 117, Cairo Nest of Spies” starring Jean Dujardin. “The Search” starred Berenice Bejo as a Ngo worker who forms a special bond with a young boy in war-torn Chechnya.
Headed by Francois Truffart, Colcoa will also screen the restored version of Wim Wenders’s “Paris Texas,” which celebrates this year its 30th anniversary. The Palme d’Or winning movie will be presented in association with Argos Films and Janus Films. »

Luis Buñuel movies on TCM tonight (photo: Catherine Deneuve in 'Belle de Jour') The city of Paris and iconoclastic writer-director Luis Buñuel are Turner Classic Movies' themes today and later this evening. TCM's focus on Luis Buñuel is particularly welcome, as he remains one of the most daring and most challenging filmmakers since the invention of film. Luis Buñuel is so remarkable, in fact, that you won't find any Hollywood hipster paying homage to him in his/her movies.
