NEW DELHI: American actress Uma Thurman will preside over the Un Certain Regard jury of the 69th Cannes Film Festival next month. The Un Certain Regard is the second competition of the Official Selection showcases works which offer a unique perspective and aesthetic. The prize list will be revealed on 27 May. She was a member of the Jury headed by Robert De Niro in 2011. In a career spanning more than 20 years, the American actress has made some daring choices and enjoyed taking risks. She made her debut at the age of 17 in Stephen Frears? Dangerous Liaisons and in Terry Gilliam?s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. She became Quentin Tarantino?s muse, playing in Pulp Fiction (Palme d?or winner 1994) and in Kill Bill (volumes 1 & 2), both presented at the Festival de Cannes. Since then, Uma Thurman has worked with many directors, including Andrew Niccol (Gattaca); Woody Allen (Sweet and Lowdown); Roland Joff? (Vatel) and Ethan Hawke (Chelsea Walls). She recently joined the cast of Lars von Trier?s new project, The House that Jack Built, alongside Matt Dillon and Bruno Ganz. Her filmography encompasses everything from action films to science fiction; intimate dramas to light comedies. This wide variety is a testament to her free and independent spirit, nurtured by her childhood in a hippy family. Whether playing crazy, sexy or dominant, the woman whose namesake is the Hindu goddess of beauty and light has definitely entered the pantheon of movie greats, with several of her scenes attaining cult status. Meanwhile, even as no Indian film finds a place in the official selection, only one Indian short film ? from the Film and Television Institute of India - has made it to the 16 films shortlisted by the the Cin?fondation Selection of the Cannes International film festival to mark the 20th year of this section. The film is ?Afternoon Clouds? by Payal Kapadia and has a duration of 13 minutes. The 16 films include 14 works of fiction and 2 animations from among the 2,600 works submitted this year by film schools from all over the world. Fourteen countries from three continents are represented. Four of the films selected come from schools taking part for the first time. The three Cin?fondation prizes will be awarded at a ceremony preceding the screening of the prize-winning films on 26 May in the Bu?uel Theatre.
