The Cannes Festival continues, with the In Competition presentation of " Lion's Den," by Argentinian director Pablo Trapero, making his third visit to the Croisette.

Argentinian director Pablo Trapero's Lion's Den is among today's Cannes Festival Competition features. This is Trapero's third journey to the Croisette: in 2002, the director was invited to present his feature El Bonaerense in the Un Certain Regard selection, and two years later, he was one of the outstanding members of the Cinéfondation and short films jury. Lion's Den is the story of what happens to Julia, a young woman being held in a special prison. She happens to be pregnant and, while in the facility, gives birth to Thomas, a baby boy. One day, Julia's mother decides that she must raise the boy herself. Thus begins a desperate search...

"Despair against confinement can be endured if, for at least a few seconds, a feeling of hope or solidarity crosses the day," Pablo Trapero comments. "From these brief instants are born stories that light those lives. Wall and bars lose their density and prison keepers become babysitters... For all this, Lion's Den intends to build, not only a cinematographic tale, but room for debate and reflection. Motherhood, solitude, love, confinement and hope are the threads of this film."
