Filmmakers protest in solidarity with Palestine at Cannes

Звезда Сумерек Кристен Стюарт прошлась босиком на Каннском фестивале в знак протеста

The "Snow White and the Huntsman" star broke the heels-only rule at the Cannes Film Festival by going barefoot at the event on Monday night, May 14.

Back in 2015, a group of well-dressed women was denied entry into a screening at the prestigious festival thanks to their choice of flat shoes. People get very upset at you if you, like, don't wear heels or something-whatever. However, according to the Hollywood Reporter, festival director Thierry Fremaux later said that the existence of a high heel policy was just a rumor.

In 2014, actress Emma Thompson famously carried her heels on stage at the Golden Globes while also holding a martini glass when she appeared to present an award.

"If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either", she stated emphatically at the time.

The 23-year-old Canadian model turned heads as she arrived on the red carpet at the exclusive Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in her monochrome creation. It's just like you simply can not ask me to do something that you are not asking him.




Stewart isn't the first to go barefoot at Cannes, in 2016 actress Julia Roberts went shoeless to the premiere of Money Monster.

In an effort to put an end to the age-old sexist tradition, the member of the jury, Kristen has begun speaking out against the dress code and the sexist fashion expectations at the event. Lebanese actress Manal Issa stood up in front of the world protesting against the innocent deaths in Gaza.

Filmaker Spike Lee received a ten-minute standing ovation for BlacKkKlansman.

The film, starring John David Washington, Adam Driver and Topher Grace, is set in the early 1970s and follows the fortunes of Ron Stallworth.
