Netflix booed at Okja’s Cannes premiere

At a press conference following the screening, Tilda Swinton was asked about the festival’s likely reluctance to award Okja the Palme d’Or, and responded: “[T]he truth is we didn’t come here for prizes. We came here to show this film to the Cannes Film Festival and to people who have gathered here from all over the world… I think it’s an enormous and interesting conversation that is beginning, but the truth is if you want to know what I really think? I think, as in many matters, there is room for everybody.” – Kaitlyn Tiffany, The Verge
