Only 19 of the 21 directors with films competing for the festival’s highest prize, the Palme d’Or, walked the red carpet. Two others — Iran’s Jafar Panahi and Russia’s Kirill Serebrennikov — were prevented from attending. Both directors have found themselves in conflict with their governments, and while neither of their films were directly political or critical, they both harbored a rich critical subtext.

The director of Leto, Russian director and dissident Kirill Serebrennikov, wasn’t in Cannes because he’s under house arrest. His nonprofit was raided last summer by Russian law enforcement, allegedly because Serebrennikov is under suspicion of masterminding an embezzlement plot that caused harm to the state.-Vox
