Dear Shaded Viewers,

Saint Laurent Productions proudly unveils three captivating films set to compete in the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival: Jacques Audiard’s “Emilia Perez,” David Cronenberg’s “The Shrouds,” and Paolo Sorrentino’s “Parthenope.” This announcement marks a significant milestone as Saint Laurent becomes the first fashion house to venture into full-fledged film production.

“Emilia Perez,” directed by Jacques Audiard, invites viewers into a world of intrigue and transformation. Starring Zoe Saldaña, Selena Gomez, and Edgar Ramirez, the film follows Rita, a lawyer entangled in the criminal underworld, as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery alongside cartel leader Manitias.

David Cronenberg’s “The Shrouds” explores the boundaries between life and death, reality and technology. Vincent Cassel leads the cast as Karsh, a grieving widower who pioneers a controversial technology allowing communication with the deceased. As graves are desecrated, Karsh embarks on a quest for truth amidst a backdrop of mystery and suspense.

Paolo Sorrentino’s “Parthenope” offers a sweeping epic of life and love in Naples. Through the decades, the film follows the journey of Parthenope, played by Celeste Dalla Porta, as she navigates the complexities of passion and freedom in the vibrant city. With an ensemble cast featuring Stefania Sandrelli and Daniele Rienzo, Sorrentino delivers a poignant exploration of love, loss, and the timeless allure of Naples.

Each film, brought to life by visionary directors and talented casts, promises to captivate audiences with its depth, emotion, and cinematic splendor. As Saint Laurent Productions pioneers this new frontier in film, it continues to echo the creative breadth and nuances of Anthony Vaccarello’s iconic collections, reaffirming its status as a trailblazer in the worlds of fashion and cinema.
