In arts24’s weekly film show, critic Lisa Nesselson and Eve Jackson are joined by award-winning French documentary maker Yolande Zauberman to talk about her 1987 film “Classified People”. It showed the realities of living under apartheid in South Africa through the eyes of a couple considered inter-racial under the country’s classification laws. The film has been restored and is being re-released in France. We also have reviews of French writer-director Catherine Breillat’s Cannes competition film “Last Summer”, about an affair between a teenager and his stepmother, and Cannes Jury Prize winner “Fallen Leaves” from Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki.
