2022 MIPCOM Cannes Screenings & Talents

The Cannes red carpet welcomed the world premieres and special screenings of the most highly anticipated series in 2022.

THE ENGLISH - Sunday Red Carpet Screening

Presented by All3Media International.

Written and directed by multi-award-winning Hugo Blick (The Honourable Woman, Black Earth Rising, The Shadow Line), and produced by acclaimed production company Drama Republic (Doctor Foster, Us, The Honourable Woman), a Mediawan company, The English takes the core themes of identity and revenge to tell a uniquely compelling parable on race, love and power. An aristocratic Englishwoman, Lady Cornelia Locke (Emily Blunt) and Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer) come together in 1890 mid-America to cross a violent landscape built on dreams and blood.


ELPIS - Asian World Premiere Screening

Presented by KANSAI TV.

Inspired by multiple true cases of false accusations, Elpis (written by Aya Watanabe and directed by Hitoshi One) follows Ena Asakawa (Masami Nagasawa), a former network anchor whose star has faded due to scandal and now helms a late-night, less-formal magazine show. There an under-rated and rookie director Takuro Kishimoto (Gordon Maeda) begins to doubt a death row conviction which, together with Asakawa, make-up artist Cherry (Toko Miura) and star reporter Shouichi Saito (Ryohei Suzuki), they investigate and unravel as a state-wide conspiracy and cover up.
