Cannes Classics is proud to welcome Martin Scorsese as its honorary president in 2009. The program was created in 2004 to accompany the features premiering in the official Selection with a selection of rare and restored masterpieces of the past, many of which are being re-released in theaters or on DVD. For example, the three features from different horizons screening today are all due to be available again soon. At 3 pm, Buñuel Theater will be showing a never-released version of Brighter Summer Day (1991) by Taiwanese director Edward Yang, restored by the World Cinema Foundation. At 8 pm, the screenings continue, with Gaumont's restoration of Eyes Without a Face by Georges Franju. Lastly, at 7:45 pm in the Salle du Soixantième, festivalgoers can catch Senso (1954), a dramatic 19th-century love story directed by Luchino Visconti, now digitally restored by StudioCanal and Centro Sperimentale de Cinematografia.
