Paris, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) The Cannes Festival will present four of the films selected this year to compete in its canceled 73rd edition, in a message of hope to the film sector hit by Covid-19, the organizers said today.
 
From tomorrow, the paradisiacal city on the Mediterranean coast will host between Tuesday and Thursday the screening of the French films El Triunfo, by director Emmanuel Courcol, and Los Dos Alfred, by Bruno Podalydès, as well as the Japanese Asa Ga Kuru (True Mothers), from Naomi Kawase, and Dea Kulumbegashvili's Georgian Beginning.

The four films were chosen by the selection committee among the 56 planned in the considered mecca of the seventh art, an event that for not a few only hosts the interest of the Olympic Games and attracts 40 thousand professionals from the sector and more than 200 each year a thousand people.

Cinema is one of the components of culture affected by the health and economic crisis derived from Covid-19, from the closure of theaters and the cancellation or delay of productions.

Baptized as a 'mini Cannes Festival', the organizers insisted on the importance of offering hope and on the social distancing measures to be followed by the public present at the Palais des Festivals et Congres de Cannes.

Scheduled in the spring, the seventh art forum was suspended due to the scourge of the pandemic, an edition that had as president of the jury the American director, screenwriter, producer and actor Spike Lee, who would be responsible for making the film known winner of the Golden Palm.

Last year, the award went to the South Korean feature Parasites, directed by Bong Joon-ho.
