"I am so pleased to start a collaboration between Visions du Réel and the Doc Corner at the Marché du Film. It will most surely contribute to building a rich, lively, useful platform for doc makers and doc lovers in Cannes. In this perspective, I am glad to be granting Alessandra Celesia and Jean-Laurent Csinidis with two Marché du Film badges to take part in the Doc Corner & Doc day activities. I hope it will help them as much as possible to move forward with The Flats, a very sensitive, powerful project through which the filmmaker is aiming at – quote – “magnifying [her] characters, for they deserve to be presented as cinematic heroes”. I’m looking very much forward to welcoming them both in Cannes!" announced Pierre-Alexis Chevit, Project Manager Doc Corner.
