Refocused on the discovery of emerging filmmakers, the 2021 Un Certain Regard has offered twenty features in its competition. Six of them were first films that compete as well for the Caméra d’or. The opening film was Arthur Harari’s Onoda – 10 000 Nights in the Jungle.
Lead by the director and screenwriter Andrea Arnold, the Jury was made up of the director and screenwriter Mounia Meddour, the actress Elsa Zylberstein, the director and screenwriter Daniel Burman and Michael Covino, director and actor.
In our discussions, the two things we were constantly saying were: “this film is very brave” and “this film come from the heart”. Many of the films are very passionnate and many of the films are talking about things which are hard to talk about. We’d like to acknowledge all the filmmakers for their brave and beautiful work. Their films created vigorous debates.
