"The White Ribbon" competing for the Palme d'Or

Michael Haneke presents "The White Ribbon" in Competition today

For the fifth time in his career, Austrian director Michael Haneke is presenting a Competition feature at the Cannes Festival. The White Ribbon is set in a small Protestant village in Northern Germany on the eve of World War I. In these austere surroundings, a series of strange accidents is noticed. They gradually take on the character of a ritual punishment. Who is behind it all?

"The story of the children and teenagers in a choir run by the village schoolteacher, and their families: the baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers."
In 2001, Michael Haneke was awarded the Grand Prize for The Pianist and, in 2005, the Director's Prize for Hidden.
