‘Anatomy of a Fall’ by Triet wins top prize at Cannes Film Festival in France.

French Director Justine Triet Becomes Third Woman to Win Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or

“We have to make room for them, room that I was given 15 years ago in a slightly less hostile world where it was still possible to make mistakes and start again.”

Justine Triet made history at the Cannes Film Festival by becoming the third female director to win the prestigious Palme d’Or award. Triet’s film beat out 20 other entries to take home the top prize. In her acceptance speech, Triet used the platform to criticize the French government’s handling of the recent pension reform protests and called for more opportunities for young filmmakers.
