Cannes Festival exhibition recap

My exhibition in Cannes is now over, what a great experience! The highlights included being interviewed by RTL (a French radio station) and having the the honour of welcoming Madam Lortie, the partner of the Ambassador of Canada to France and Louise Blais, Director of the Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris, who took the time out of their very busy Cannes schedule to come see the exhibition. Prior to the vernissage on Monday May 10, there was a talk by Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Cannes Festival followed by an overview of the films and a special screening of 'La Piscine'.
I was also very fortunate to attend many films screening in the festival. I saw 'The Myth of the American Sleepover', the Stephen Frears film 'Tamara Drewe', 'Film Socialism' directed by Jean-Luc Godard, 'Blue Valentine' and 'Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow', an intriguing documentary on artist Anselm Kiefer's installation at Barjac. All in all a very busy and memorable week!
