Cannes 2016: the triumph of social realism

Image Summed up the results of the 69th International Cannes Film Festival , which took place from 11 to 22 May. This year, 21 films were presented to the jury headed by George Miller. And more than anyone else, the judges were impressed by the painting Ken Loach " I, Daniel Blake ", which received the Palme d'Or .

For the master of social realism Loach this is the second highest award of the festival. Exactly ten years ago, in 2006, the filmmaker became a Cannes laureate for the historical drama The Wind That Shakes the Heather.

The film I, Daniel Blake , about a carpenter from Newcastle trying to get welfare benefits from the state, elicited a violent emotional reaction from viewers, while critics were more restrained in their statements.

Note that within the framework of the program "Special Look" at the festival was presented a picture of our compatriot Kirill Serebrennikov "The Apprentice", which was awarded the Francois Chalet Prize by the jury.
