Since the creation of its Women In Motion program in 2015, the luxury group Kering has been highlighting women’s place in arts and culture. This year, Swiss director Carmen Jaquier is the winner of the Emerging Talent Award.

 

Nine years ago, Kering launched its Women In Motion program in Cannes. At this new 2023 edition, Kering and the Cannes Film Festival will award the Emerging Talent Award to Carmen Jaquier, a talented Swiss director who directed her first feature film, Foudre.

In addition to media recognition, this prize is accompanied by a financial support of 50 000 euros, for the creation of a future film project.

 

Women In Motion Emerging Talent exists since 2015, but for 4 years, it is the former winner who chooses the future winner. Thus, it is the Swedish Ninja Thyberg who conquered hearts last year with her film Pleasure, who set her sights on Carmen Jaquier.

 

Lightning is an incredibly beautiful, innovative film that celebrates life and challenges conventional ideas about sexuality, God, pain and redemption. Carmen Jaquier is 100% faithful to her female protagonist and this film offers a real feminine look (female gaze). It is a great honour to give her this award,” said the Swedish director.

 

The ceremony will be held in a few days on the occasion of the official dinner Women In Motion in Cannes, and Carmen Jaquier will not be the only highlight. Michelle Yeoh, this year’s Oscar winner and international star, will receive the Women In Motion Award.

 

The two awards will be presented by the head of the French luxury group, François-Henri Pinault, as well as Iris Knobloch, president of the Cannes Film Festival and Thierry Frémaux, general delegate of the festival.

 

I am very grateful to receive this award, and what’s more, from a radical and inspiring filmmaker like Ninja Thyberg. Thanks to Women In Motion, I feel a kind of sorority, it touches me and gives me hope in this need that I have reflections, rebellions and transmissions. I have a special thought for all the people, technicians, producers, screenwriters, actresses and actors who have made a strong commitment to me for my first film, Lightning“, said the 2023 winner in a Kering press release.

 

Since her beginnings, Carmen Jaquier has been interested in the shackles that lock women up, especially with her first short film Bouffe-moi, which she directed with three friends. In 2011, she received her first prize for her graduation film The Tomb of the Girls, telling the story of the construction of feminism through the lens of masculinity. A recurring theme, on which she relies for all her other short films.

 

Women In Motion: a 100% women’s and feminist award

 

Launched in 2015 by Kering, as part of its partnership with the Cannes Film Festival, this event is an integral part of the official programme and has a worldwide reach. Each year, it rewards inspiring figures and emerging female talents.

 

The Emerging Talent Award was awarded to nine women: Leyla Bouzid (Tunisia), Gaya Jiji (Syria), Ida Panahandeh (Iran), Maysaloun Hamoud (Palestine), Carla Simón (Spain), Eva Trobisch (Germany), Maura Delpero (Italy), Shannon Murphy (Australia) and Ninja Thyberg (Sweden).

 

In addition to this first award, the Women In Motion Award recognizes the career and commitment of strong personalities from the world of cinema such as Jane Fonda in 2015, Isabelle Huppert in 2017 and Viola Davis last year.

Gender parity is at the heart of Kering’s commitments, whether within its companies or through their various projects. With Women in Motion, the luxury group wishes to highlight the contribution of women in the 7th art, in front and behind the camera.
