Ingenious Media is proud to present two films in the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, running from 6 to 15 July, moved from its usual May berth due to the pandemic.
The first, Flag Day, is directed by Sean Penn and stars his daughter Dylan in a breakout role, together with Penn himself, Josh Brolin and Katheryn Winnick. Flag Day will hold its World Premiere in the Official Competition. Following its selection announcement, MGM acquired North American distribution rights and will release the film via its marketing-distribution joint venture United Artists Releasing in August this year. Flag Day is based on Jennifer Vogel’s memoir Flim-Flam: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life. It tells the story of the author’s coming of age, played by Dylan Penn, over two decades while navigating a fraught relationship with her beloved, career criminal father.
The second Ingenious-backed production will screen in the new Cannes Première section. Oliver Stone’s new feature documentary about the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass, is narrated by Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Sutherland and includes a team of forensics, medical and ballistics experts, historians and witnesses. The documentary comes thirty years after Oliver Stone’s Oscar-winning drama JFK and will feature recently declassified evidence and testimony in relation to the President’s 1963 assassination. Altitude Film Distribution will release the film in the UK and Ireland.
