Four masterclasses with directors Christopher Nolan and Ryan Coogler and actors John Travolta and newly minted Oscar-winner Gary Oldman will share their work and passion about cinema during this year’s Rendez-vous with… for the festival goers of the Cannes Film Festival. The sessions will take place in Buñuel Theatre, which replaces the Leçon de cinéma.
The program this year will be a focus on English and American cinema. One glaring visual is that all four conversations will be with men, with women once again taking a backseat to the larger discussion of film at Cannes.
Nolan will also be at the festival to present the 50th anniversary showing of Stanley Kubrick’s iconic work 2001: A Space Odyssey in Cannes Classics and Ryan Coogler will show his worldwide blockbuster Black Panther, the highest grossing superhero movie of all time, in the Cinéma de la Plage section.
