Ruben Ostlund's 'Triangle of Sadness' wins Palme d'Or at Cannes

Director Ruben Ostlund's new movie "Triangle of Sadness" (Huzun Ucgeni), co-produced by the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT), won the Palme d’Or at the 75th Cannes film festival.

The Swedish director won one of the most prestigious cinema awards for a second time after winning the Cannes Film Festival's top honor in 2017 for “The Square.”

“Triangle of Sadness” is a social satire on wealthy industrialists and influencers, featuring two models and influencers, Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean) who are invited on a luxury yacht cruise.

In addition to Turkiye, other co-producer countries were Sweden, France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Greece.

Headed by French actor Vincent Lindon, the Cannes jury awarded the festival's second prize, Grand Prix, to French Director Claire Denis for “Stars at Noon” and Belgian director Lukas Dhont for "Close."

The Jury Prize was split between “EO” by Polish director Jerzy Skollimowski and “The Eight Mountains,” an Italian-language drama by Charlotte Vandermeersch and Felix Van Groeningen.
