The Official Selection for the Cannes Film Festival 2017 was announced by Festival President Pierre Lescure and General Delegate Thierry Fremaux at a press conference which was live-streamed on YouTube. Among those films selected is HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES, which was written by Philippa Goslett and John Cameron Mitchell, based on the short story of the same name by Neil Gaiman. The film stars Elle Fanning, Alex Sharp, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson and Matt Lucas. Costume design is by Sandy Powell and choreography by Lea Anderson.
The film follows an alien touring the galaxy who breaks away from her group and meets two inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe: the London suburb of Croydon.
Lea’s mis-construction of Bartok’s Miraculous Mandarin featuring dancers Eleanor Perry, Harry Alexander, Joshua Ben-Tovim, Anders Duckworth, Ruben Brown and music by Steve Blake is being filmed 23-26 March 2017 in Aarhus town hall, Denmark. This will form part of visual artist and film director Jasmina Cibic’s work Nada 2.
