Netease Entertainment reported on April 16 that the 72nd Cannes Film Festival will open on May 14 and close on May 25. A few days ago, the main poster of the Cannes Film Festival was released. It was the legendary director and mother of the French New Wave Film, Agnes Valda, who died at the end of last month, who was filming intensely on the poster with a camera. On March 29, 2019, Walda died at home after a brief battle with cancer. Her family and friends were all around her at the age of 90.
The poster shows Agnes Walda, 26, who was filming La Pointe Court in 1954, when the film premiered in the non-contest section of the Cannes Film Festival. This classic image is taken on the beach of the small town of Seth in southeastern France. Walda is standing on the shoulder of a technician and looking at the camera.
This photo summarizes everything about Anes Walda: her enthusiasm, calmness and pranks. The organizer of the Cannes Film Festival said that she had the ingredients of a free artist and formed a recipe that she never stopped improving.
Anes Valda is recognized as the mother of French cinema. Her husband is Jacques Demi, a famous director. Her family is engaged in the film industry. She has won the Oscar Lifelong Achievement Award, the San Sebastian International Film Festival Lifelong Achievement Award, the Cannes Film Festival Golden Horse Award and many other honors.
Agnes Waldas films appeared 13 times in the main competition unit of Cannes Film Festival. In 2005, she served as a member of the jury, and in 2013, she was the judge of the Golden Photography Award, which selected the best debut films from all the units.
In 2015, Anes Val became the first woman to win the Golden Palm Award. She also won the Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival, the Silver Bear Award at the Berlin Film Festival, and won an honorary Oscar in 2018. She is also the oldest Oscar nominee in history.
