The American director, Jim Garmusch, opened the Cannes Film Festival last night with the film "The Dead Do not Die", which is critical of American society.
The comedian will compete in the Palme d & # 39; Or with the latest works by Quentin Tarantino and Pedro Almodobar, as well as a series of films by new directors.
The film is set in a small town where people are transformed into & # 39; living dead & # 39; or zombie. The film criticizes those who deny climate change, criticizes American policy and the world of smartphones, which is dominated by materialism. Actors Bill Murray, Adam Dreyver and Clawie Sivani play the role of police officers against a growing zombie army. Pop star Selena Gomez and actress Tilda Swinton also play in the film.
The film is presented during the 72nd edition of the festival, from a series of films, which the organizers described as & # 39; political and romantic & # 39 ;. This year the jury is led by Mexican director Alejandro González Inarito, the first director from Latin America to chair the jury in Cannes.
