Israel's massacre in Gaza reaches Cannes red carpet

Israel's massacre in Gaza reaches Cannes red carpet”

The French-Lebanese actress Manal Issa, who first starred in Danielle Arbid's Peur de Rien (Parisienne) in 2015, highlighted the plight of Palestinians killed in Gaza by Israeli occupation forces as she walked the red carpet in Cannes yesterday.

The Cesar-winning actress also stormed the red carpet in another way when she teamed up with Blanchett and DuVernay on Saturday for a march highlighting the lack of female directors included at Cannes over the years.

CANNES-The issue of high heels at Cannes has been a spiky one in recent years.

Kristen Stewart told the Hollywood Reporter a year ago:"If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can not ask me either".

The festival declined to comment on the report at the time but confirmed women were required to wear high-heels to red carpet screenings although this has since been disputed by festival director Thierry Fremaux.

They're off. 

Kristen Stewart known for her performance in the Twilight series removed her heels as she walked the red carpet in Cannes to protest the Heels Only rule for women. "Does he have to wear heels?'" You can not come in.' Then [I'm going to say], 'Neither is my friend. "It can work both ways".

While she was climbing the stairs the photographers kept taking pictures.

"You just can't ask me to do something that you're not asked to do man".

She added, " I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version - flats or heels". Of course, she has the privilege of being a wealthy and well-known movie star who was unlikely to be barred entry even as she arrived barefoot. The fact that so many heads are turning at the mere sight of the barefoot Stewart means we have a long way to go, but we're moving in the right direction.
