For those of you who were still wondering about the identity of the mysterious young woman seen in motion from behind, featured on the official Cannes Festival 2009 poster, it is Italian actress Monica Vitti in a still from the masterpiece by Michelangelo Antonioni, The Adventure, winner of the 1960 Prix du Jury. The magnificent image is emblematic of all the splendor of cinema, and it was warmly applauded by the audience when The Adventure screened last Wednesday. The official 62nd Cannes Film Festival poster design was based on this dream-inspiring "photogramme." Artist Annick Durban developed a whole scenography around this sequence, which is featured everywhere, from the film program and publications to the banners on the front of the Palais.
