55th Directors’ Fortnight

a la une, Arts

The 55th edition of the Directors’ Fortnight reveals itself, luminous and adventurous. Serene, with no frills, Leonor Silveira questions our gaze.

The 2023 poster pays tribute to Manoel de Oliveira‘s magnificent Abraham’s Valley (inspired by Gustave Flaubert‘s Madame Bovary) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its selection (1993 Directors’ Fortnight).

As censorship was jeopardizing the publication of his novel, Flaubert declared :

“There is immorality in good writing”.

From May 17 to 26, we invite you to a journey through singular, free-spirited and subversive films.
