n°273/ Women

May 2017

Cannes Film Festival is about to entertain the whole planet about movies, red carpets and movie stars. If some famous people rebel by rejecting a Nobel Prize, very few of them (none?) refuse an invitation to such a glamorous place. For most of us, the feast steps into our daily lives through a mere poster. Appearing on the subway or the city walls, we begin to enjoy a vision we will get used to and slightly be bored with fifteen days later. Every year designers try to reinvent iconic glamour through still or dynamic pics, movie scenes, famous faces, loving couples, gestures, symbols. 2017 is about a feminist woman (Claudia Cardinale) moving and dancing. Let Cannes be the festival of women's freedom.
