“We, the jury, would like to thank the Festival de Cannes for inviting us to be part of the Jury for Un Certain Regard.
The experience of watching nineteen films from twenty-one countries was memorable. It was like taking a flight over our Planet and its inhabitants… Any anthropologist would be envious of us.

We would like in particular to thank Thierry Frémaux and his team for their incredible kindness.
I cannot refrain from expressing also my personal gratitude to the Festival for having chosen my mother Ingrid Bergman for the poster of the 68th edition of this festival.

Mamma seems to hovered over all of us, filmmakers and film lovers, as a guardian angel.
Thank you.“
