Luc Jacquet, director of the Oscar-winning March of the Penguins (La Marche de l’empereur), will present his fourth feature film, Ice and the Sky, as Closing Film of the 68th Festival de Cannes, Sunday, May 24 in the Grand Théâtre Lumière of the Palais des Festivals.

 In this documentary Luc Jacquet discusses the scientific discoveries of Claude Lorius who left in 1957 to study the Antarctic ice.

In 1965 he was the first to be concerned by global warming and its consequences for the planet. Today, aged 82, he continues to look at the future with hope:

"I believe that men will still up. 

My language is cinema. In different times, I would have made other films. But I make fierce cinema, political cinema, cinema that has no choice."

 The Festival de Cannes will run May 13-24, 2015. The Jury is chaired by Joel and Ethan Coen whom will hand out the prizes to the winners of the Competition before the screening of Luc Jacquet's film.

Brillante Mendoza's Taklub is included for Un Certain Regard category.
