Jérémy Clapin’s feature I Lost My Body as part of the 58th International Critics’ Week sidebar at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival
Jérémy Clapin’s feature I Lost My Body (J’ai perdu mon corps) will have its world premiere as part of the 58th International Critics’ Week sidebar at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
I Lost My Body is Jérémy Clapin’s first feature film. Co-written with Guillaume Laurant and produced by Marc du Pontavice (Xilam Animation), the animated film is an adaptation of Laurant’s novel Happy Hand. A cut-off hand escapes from a dissection lab with one crucial goal: to get back to its body. As it scrambles through the pitfalls of Paris, it remembers its life with the young man it was once attached to… until they met Gabrielle.
The prestigious Critics’ Week sidebar, organized by the French Syndicate of Film Critics, chooses just seven feature films annually, and focuses on first and second films by promising directors. This year, 1,050 feature films were submitted.
I Lost My Body will have its world premiere on Friday May 17th, in the presence of the film crew.
