Standing Ovation For Gomez And Rahman Launching His Music Documentary, It Was A Happening 6th Day

It is already day 6 of the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, and stars from all over the globe made their grand appearance at the Riviera. It was a happening event, and there is a lot that happened. 

However, here we are going to talk about the two highlights that made the evening special. Selena Gomez got a nine-minute standing ovation, and A.R. Rahman repealed the first look of his music documentary at the event.

9-minute Standing Ovation for Selena Gomez!!

Selena Gomez was moved and was spotted wiping off her tears when her new movie, “Emilia Perez,”  received a 9-minute long standing ovation. This is the longest-standing ovation any movie has got this year.

She tried to keep her composure, but her emotions got the best of her. This film is directed by Jacques Audiard, and it stars Edgar Ramirez, Zoe Saldana, Karla Sofia Gascon, and obviously Selena Gomez. 

There is a video going viral that shows Gomez smiling as well as welling up as the crowd cheers for her after watching her performance in the movie. The movie is about a Mexican cartel leader who is looking for gender-affirming surgery.

The role is plaed by Karla Sofia Gascon. Selena Gomez played the role of Gascon’s wife on-screen. Gomez arrived at the festival in a ravishing black velvet gown draped with white satin neckline. She completed the entire look with a diamond earring and a diamond collar necklace. 

On Sunday, she wore a red off-shoulder gown with red heels for the press conference and photocall for the movie. In an interview with Variety, Gomez mentioned that she was smitten by “Emilia Perez” after she read the script.

She said, “It was captivating, it was heartbreaking, it was really moving to me. I had a blast and I love the songs. I think they’re really beautiful.” Her next big project is going to be playing the role of Linda Ronstadt in a biopic.

A.R. Rahman Launches His New Documentary

A.R. Rahman, the Grammy-winning composer, unveiled the first look of Headhunting to Beatboxing, his music documentary, at the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival at the Bharat Pavilion. 

The film explores a fascinating journey of sound and rhythm, tracing music’s evolution across cultures, generations, and tribes. The documentary promises its audience an enlightening and immersive musical anthropological odyssey. Starting from headhunting tribes, which is an ancient tradition, to the musical renaissance, it has everything.

When discussing the project, Rahman mentioned, “Music has this transformative power to change society and to connect and bring relevance to existence. Headhunting to Beatboxing is a celebration of this universal rhythm that unites humanity in its diverse expression.”

He added, “We look forward to the start of its film festival journey, and what better than Cannes, which celebrates cinema to make the first announcement on the film.”

The plan is to get the Nagaland Musicians more exposure and that includes training them at Rahman’s music conservatory.
