The starriest sidebar at Cannes was unveiled today, with the likes of Robert De Niro, Roman Polanski, Jerry Lewis, Alfred Hitchcock and Roberto Rossellini topping the bill. They've all got films scheduled in the Cannes Classics wing devoted to restored prints of old classics, and created in 2004 "as the relationship between contemporary cinema and its own memory was disrupted by the advent of the digital age".
Thirteen features, two shorts, a mini-concert and four documentaries – all world premieres – are on the bill, including the previously announced restored and extended print of Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in America, which has been overseen by Martin Scorsese. Robert De Niro, Elizabeth McGovern and Jennifer Connelly, who star in the film, will attend, alongside the Leone family. »
