His absence from the selection had surprised more than one. Finally, Onoda – 10,000 nights in the jungle will be well in Cannes. Not in official competition, but within the Un certain regard selection, of which it will even be the opening film. To celebrate, Le Pacte, which now totals 9 feature films selected for Cannes 2021, has posted the trailer for this fresco by Arthur Harari.

5 years later Black Diamond, a heist film that plunged us into Antwerp, the director changes scenery and dimensions with this 2:40 film inspired by the incredible true story of Hiroo Onoda, a young Japanese boy sent with other soldiers to an island in the Philippines in 1944, just before the American landing. Indoctrinated and trained in Secret Warfare, he lived like this for 30 years, convinced that World War II was not over.

International film shot in Japanese, Onoda will therefore be presented at the Cannes Film Festival on July 7, 2021, before hitting French theaters on July 21. A poster was also unveiled:
