Triple Vision at close of Critics' Week

Jean-Luc Godard, Peter Greenaway and Edgar Pêra to explore 3D at Cannes.

by Richard Mowe

A film that explores 3D cinema and its evolution against the backdrop of the Portuguese city of Guimarães, has been selected as the closing choice for Cannes Critics' Week (May 16-24).

Three world renown directors - Jean-Luc Godard, Peter Greenaway and Edgar Pêra - have collaborated on the portmanteau project 3X3D which looks at how the special effects altert the audience’s perception of images.

The production comprises three short films with Greenaway dealing with the superimposition of images, Jean-Luc Godard looking at the historical background and Pèra lightening up the atmosphere with a playful glance at the history of 3D.

The screening will be on 23 May. The rest of the programme has already been announced.
