Trailer I Website I Blog on ITwitter I Contact I Festival Screeners

An expose of the last King of Iran’s medical story

On January 16,1979, the Shah of Iran Mohamad Reza Pahlavi, left the royal palace, the Peacock Throne and his beloved country Iran for the last time, commencing what became a 19-month odyssey into exile. He wondered hopelessly from Egypt to Morocco, Bahamas, Mexico, the U.S, then Panama and back again to Egypt where he died furtively at the age of 60. His death had profound consequences for the future of the Middle East and the world, yet the untold medical story of the last King of Iran has to date remained a puzzling mystery. By unraveling the secrecy surrounding this critical period of history, beginning from the onset of the Shah’s illness, to the diagnosis/misdiagnosis and maltreatment, “A Dying King” exposes the main causes of the Iranian Revolution, the pursuant 444 days hostage crisis, and the adversarial relations between the U.S and Iran.

Petit changement dans les dates du Festival de Cannes 2018


« Après l’édition-anniversaire de 2017, le Festival ouvre une nouvelle période de son histoire, déclare Pierre Lescure, son Président. Nous entendons renouveler le plus possible nos principes d’organisation, tout en continuant à interroger le cinéma de notre époque et à accompagner ses bouleversements.»

Ce nouveau calendrier permet de rééquilibrer les deux semaines de la manifestation et d’en dynamiser le déroulement.

De plus, commencer le mardi permettra d’ajouter une soirée de gala avant le premier week-end du Festival et d’organiser des avant-premières du film d’ouverture dans toute la France.

Enfin, avancer l’annonce du Palmarès d’une journée, en la plaçant le samedi soir, accroîtra son prestige tout en donnant au film de clôture une meilleure exposition.
