From the Na Estrada FB Director, Walter Salles reacts to the film’s Cannes selection. kstewartnews/ vonch (Translated)
“‘On the Road’ is a project on which a group of people, many of them coming from the ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’ family, has devoted 7 years of their lives. The fact that the film has been selected for the Competition of the Cannes Film Festival is a reward for the young actors and technicians who have given so much to the film. Traveling more than 100 thousand kms to film it, this gives an idea of the adventure which we had. ‘On the Road’ only exists because of the passion that we all had for Kerouac’s book and by the behavioral revolution he sparked. And, also, by the courageous action of independent distributors and producers, led by MK2 and associates the Zoetrope, made the film a reality. "The production company, American Zoetrope, San Francisco began to idealize the project for more than 30 years and has done an unprecedented partnership with the French company MK2, which acquired the direct. In Brazil, the film will be released on June 15, with Playarte distribution.This profile will be in Cannes and will cover the whole festival, from the point of view from within the team and cast of on the road. Time to pack up our bags.”
