    This morning, Cannes announced the full lineup for its 2017 installment, which is set to take place from May 17-28th, and it was confirmed that two episodes of the series will premiere as part of the festival’s 70th anniversary events.

What’s more, back-to-back Oscar-winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu also returns with a new VR project titled, Carne y arena.
