with i think it was well deserved this was an excellent film and a real real tug around the heartstrings but i was a bit upset a bit upset that you didn't see any of the females represented directors represented in the top prizes we had only three women directors this year in competition and none of them won one any of the top awards now this is the first cannes film festival in the need to air i did anything stand out in terms of gender equality that feature at this year's event. well yeah actually featured at this year's awards ceremony because asia argento the italian actress who is one of the women who bravely came forward to accuse harvey weinstein the all the producer of assault of the of raping her actually at the festival many years ago she presented an award at this year's ceremony and she said to the audience i was right the harvey weinstein and this festival was his hunting ground and said that there are still men out there in the industry in the film industry who must be brought to
brought to justice which got a rousing round of applause the festival itself has tried to take steps to correct what is seen not only as a culture of harassment and assault in the industry but also the incredible gender disparity i mean this year you had just three female directors in total there being only eighty two women in the seventy one years represented in the competition here can this year has taken steps they said they're going to make clear how the films are selected they going to make sure there's gender parity on the on the boards that select the films for the future and they hope that this will really make make change it is a good step but i'll wait to see what actually happens because promises have been made before and can still remains very much an old boys' club and old boys' club other prizes have been handed out as well scott who are some of the key winners. yeah for me the two most interesting ones were the other two the sort of the best
director and runner up film the runner up so much to spike lee's black klansman an amazing film based on a true story incredible true story about a black police officer who successfully infiltrated the ku klux klan on the phone pretending to be pretending to be white that pertained to be a racist the best spike lee film in years and for me it deserved the palme d'or got the runner up a grand jury prize but definitely worth a watch that film also. polish film cold war won the best director prize this is from the director of ito which won the oscar a couple of years ago for me this is the best made film this year and can beautiful black and white film it's a love story set in soviet era poland wonderful music perfect acting perfect direction really really a joy to watch really enjoy the joy of cinema those are two of my highlights this year and they both came out with two of the two of the top prize and so so it definitely was a pretty good here in cannes this time around i just would have liked to see
