The films that will compete for the “Golden Palm” and other awards at the Cannes Film Festival, the most prestigious film festival in the world, have been announced.

The last film of the Palme d’Or winner Ruben Östlund’s TRT co-production is at Cannes
One of the most important directors of our time, Ruben Östlund’s new film, awarded the Palme d’Or, has become one of the 18 films selected for the main competition of the Cannes Film Festival. Ruben Östlund continues his perspective he had in the films “Tourist” and “Kare”, in which he achieved international success, in the film “Triangle of Sadness”. As in his previous films, Östlund satirizes human nature in this film, and builds the black comedy world in the film on the absurd situations of the upper middle class and upper classes. Co-production of Turkey, Sweden, France, USA, England, Switzerland and Greece, “Triangle of Sadness” tells the story of young modeling couple Carl and Yaya on a super luxury cruise with billionaire passengers. After a storm, Carl and Yaya are stranded on a desert island with a group of billionaires and one of the ship’s cleaners. “Triangle of Sadness” is a satirical film where the hierarchy is suddenly turned upside down and roles and classes are reversed.
