The Cannes 2019 poster celebrates filmmaker Agnès Varda. If anyone knows the name of the camera assistant or grip whose back she’s standing on, please contact FDTimes. It was August 1954 and, as the official Cannes press release describes, she was filming La Pointe Courte in natural settings, with a lightweight camera, on a shoestring budget in the South of France.
