, by Charlotte Gainsbourg, a Nolita Cinema and Deadly Valentine production which will have its world premiere in the new Cannes Première programme of the Official Selection. With the tremors of passing time, Charlotte Gainsbourg has started to look at her mother Jane Birkin in a way she never did before, both of them overcoming a shared feeling of reserve. Through the camera lens, they expose themselves to one another, begin to step back and to leave some space for a mother-daughter relationship to unfold… The film’s French release on 27 October will be handled by Jour2Fête.

The Party Film Sales will also compte on two great assets, a work of fiction and a documentary at the Directors' Fortnight. With The Sea Ahead [+leggi anche:

). The politically engaged filmmaker has this time thrown himself into a loose adaptation of the eponymous autobiographical essay from sociologist Didier Eribon, and tells through archive images an intimate and political story of French workers from the beginning of the 1950s to the present day, with Adèle Haenel narrating. A documentary produced by Les Films de Pierre.

Presales (based on a promoreel) will also begin on French-Belgian co-production Too Close to the Sun by Brieuc Carnaille. Starring Clément Roussier, Marine Vacth, Diane Rouxel, Hakim Faris and Léon Durieux, the film centres on Basil, a man in his thirties who, once discharged from the hospital, returns to live with his younger sister Sarah, his closest confidante. Living with a psychiatric disorder, Basil does his best to restore a sense of normalcy in his work and in his love life. But he hides his illness from his new acquaintances. How long can he maintain this fragile stability? This feature debut is produced by French company Vixens with Belgian company Gapbusters.

The Party Films Sales will also continue presales based on promoreel for the animated film My Neighbors’ Neighbors by Anne-Laure Daffis and Léo Marchand, and based on trailer for To Kill the Beast from Argentine director Agustina San Martin and Goodnight Soldier by Hiner Saleem.
