Cannes Film Festival Official Selection - Out of Competition

World Premiere - Cartoonists

Acclaimed director Radu Mihaileanu (The Concert, The Source, Train of Life, Live and Become) teams up with Plantu, a cartoonist with French daily newspaper Le Monde for the last 40 years, to tell the story of 12 cartoonists from all over the world for democracy. The risks they run every day - often finding themselves in the front line - and the reactions and debates they provoke give us a subtle insight into the state of freedom of expression and democracy in the world today.

Synopsis of Cartoonists - Foot Soldiers of Democracy

12 loveable lunatics, capturing the comic and tragic in all four corners of the earth: cartoonists who risk their lives to defend democracy, with a smile on their faces and a pencil as their only weapon. They are French, Tunisian, Russian, American, Burkinabese, Chinese, Mexican, Algerian, Ivorian, Venezuelan, Israeli and Palestinian.

The trailer for Cartoonists may be found on VimeoPro.

Cartoonists is available in the following languages: French, English, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, Russian and Danish.
