Artist Joann Sfar, a genius of the comic book genre, has come to the 60th Cannes Festival accompanied by his friend, the clever cat who belongs to the Rabbi. Based on what the animal observes, he will be sketching secret and unexpected events. Sfar will be creating a daily cartoon, imbuing the Festival rites, from the most commonly known to the most confidential, with his own personal vision. "I'll be strolling around the Festival for the entire duration of the event, keeping a journal of sketches for you. They'll be little stories based on things I've seen or experienced." he promised. Joann Sfar also announced that he would soon be directing his first animated feature, based on his best-selling graphic novel The Rabbi's Cat. The film will be produced by Autochenille Production, a company chartered specially for the occasion by Joann Sfar, Clément Oubrerie, and Antoine Delesvaux.
