Press conference of apology for Spike Lee after yesterday’s gaffe, Saturday 17 July, on the stage of the Cannes Film Festival. The American director, president of the jury, announced the Palme d’Or by mistake at the beginning of the ceremony: an award that then went to Julia Ducournau’s “Titane”. “I got confused – he said -. It’s like you missed a free throw on the siren. I apologized to anyone who worked for Titane, they have me not to worry so I’m calm. The film? Never seen such a thing. It made me crazy, they are genius and madness put together ”.
