Yo (Me): Rafa Corts’ Spanish Film is Revelation of 2007

Every year, FIPRESCI presents its “Revelation of the Year” at a special screening during the “Critics’ Week” in Cannes. One film is chosen out of the first or second films awarded by the Federation during the previous year, in the belief that it deserves another chance, to be seen by the Cannes professional audience.

This year’s Revelation is “me” (yo), the first feature film by Spanish filmmaker Rafa Corts, discovered and awarded in Rotterdam 2007 “for its intense depiction of one man’s struggle to acquire an identity, its confident direction, and the well articulated, engaging performance of its lead”.

The first screening of the film in Cannes, which will be followed by a q&a with the filmmaker and actor/co-writer, will take place on Saturday, May 19, at 3:00 pm (15:00 h) at the Espace Miramar.
