IN COMPETITION
THE TRAITOR by Marco Bellocchio
Premiere Date: Thursday, May 23rd
In the early 1980’s, an all out war rages between Sicilian mafia bosses over the heroin trade. Tommaso Buscetta, a made man, flees to hide out in Brazil. Back home, scores are being settled and Buscetta watches from afar as his sons and brother are killed in Palermo, knowing he may be next. Arrested and extradited to Italy by the Brazilian police, Buscetta makes a decision that will change everything for the Mafia: He decides to meet with Judge Giovanni Falcone and betray the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.



UN CERTAIN REGARD
THE SWALLOWS OF KABUL by Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec
Premiere Date: Thursday, May 16th
Summer 1998 - Kabul under Taliban rule. Zunaira and Mohsen are young and in love. Despite the daily violence and misery, they hope for a better future. One day, a foolish gesture causes life to take an irrevocable turn.


UN CERTAIN REGARD
THE CLIMB by Michael Covino
Premiere Date: Friday, May 17th
Kyle and Mike are best friends who share a close bond — until Mike sleeps with Kyle's fiancée. The Climb is about a tumultuous but enduring relationship between two men across many years of laughter, heartbreak and rage. It is also the story of real-life best friends who turn their profound connection into a rich, humane and frequently uproarious film about the boundaries (or lack thereof) in all close friendships.


CRITICS' WEEK - OPENING FILM
LITIGANTE by Franco Lolli
Premiere Date: Wednesday, May 15th
Between raising her young son, taking care of her ill-tempered, cancer-battling mother, navigating her career as a top-notch lawyer dealing with a major corruption scandal, Silvia could very well be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. And what if the answer to all this was simply... love? After his widely-acclaimed debut Gente de Bien (2014 Cannes Critics’ Week), Franco Lolli takes us back to Bogota in a tender, yet bitingly funny portrait of family and modern womanhood


CRITICS' WEEK
THE UNKNOWN SAINT by Alaa Eddine Aljem
Premiere Date: Wednesday, May 15th
Moments before his capture by police, a thief digs a grave to hide a bag of money. Released from prison years later he returns to retrieve the bag, only to find a shrine to an Unknown Saint build directly over his loot, and a brand new village constructed all around it.

Looking forward to seeing you soon in Cannes and all the best,

Laurin (for the WOLF team)
