Even more than the Academy Awards, the Cannes Film Festival is the most important gathering of film-makers, talent, and distributors on the planet. It is very glamorous and very prestigious. And the “Palme”D’Or” (Golden Palm) is awarded every year by the jury to the top film.
At this year’s festival (going on right now). Lars Von Trier, a very well-known and controversial Danish director, stated at a press conference that he sympathized with Hitler and called himself a Nazi?
This is a video of his remarks.
Were these remarks offensive or not?
Note the body language of Kirsten Dunst, sitting by his side.
