Paris – Pablo Fendrik’s “El Ardor,” a pioneering Amazon-set Western action adventure, is one of the six films that have been added to Cannes Film Festival’s official selection.
“El Ardor,” the third feature from Fendrik (“Blood Appears”), will play in Special Screenings along with Laurent Bécue-Renard’s documentary “Of Men and War,” Kazakh director Adilkhan Yerzhanov’s (“Realtors”) “The Owners” and Tony Gatlif’s “Geronimo.”
French helmer Andre Techine’s 1976-set “In The Name of My Daughter” with Guillaume Canet, Catherine Deneuve and Adèle Haenel will unspool out of the competition, while Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó’s “Fehér Isten” (“White God”) will unspool in Un Certain Regard.
Described by Mundruczó as a sentimental adventure film, “White God” turns on a 12-year-old girl who runs away from home to search for her dog. The Match Factory handles international sales on the the Hungarian-German-Swedish coproduction, which marks Mundruczó’s sixth film. »
