KIRILL SEREBRENNIKOV WASN’T AT CANNES LAST YEAR

Serebrennikov was unable to attend Cannes last year when his film Petrov’s Flu was in competition due to a controversial court case that banned him from leaving Russia.

He has relocated to Germany since the ban was lifted earlier this year and returns to Cannes with “Tchaikovsky’s Wife” about the private life of the famous composer.
