Japanese Director Won Cannes' Top Award
21 May 2018 Current Affairs: Asian, Arab, and women filmmakers scored big at the closing ceremony of the 71st Cannes Film Festival, while Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda took home the top prize -- the Palme d'Or. Kore-eda, in the festival's main competition for the fifth time won the Palme d'Or for 'Manbiki Kazoku' (Shoplifters).

Kore-eda is only the second Asian Palme d'Or winner this millennium (after Thailand's Apichatpong Weerasethakul for 'Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives', 2010).

This is the seventh time that a director from Asia has bagged the coveted trophy.
