Di­rec­tor Ruben Ostlund’s film, The Square walked away with the Palme d’Or—the high­est hon­our of the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val. On Sun­day night, the Swedish di­rec­tor cel­e­brated his vic­tory in a unique way. He asked pho­tog­ra­phers in the pit be­low the stage to turn their cam­eras to the au­di­ence and led all at­ten­dees in a pri­mal scream “of hap­pi­ness”. He also said, “I can di­rect you now, af­ter all I won the Palm d'Or.”

Other win­ners in­cluded Diane Kruger as Best Ac­tress for her first Ger­man-lan­guage turn in Fatih Akin’s In the Fade, a timely story of the af­ter­math of a ter­ror­ist bomb­ing. To those who have to go on liv­ing af­ter los­ing some­one, she said, “Please know you are not for­got­ten.”

Joaquin Phoenix was named Best Ac­tor for You Were Never Re­ally Here. In a fun twist, the ac­tor sported sneak­ers, and apol­o­gised as his proper shoes al­ready had been sent home.
