After winning the Prize Un Certain Regard at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival with White God, Kornel Mundruczo is back is Cannes and on FRED with Jupiter’s Moon, in competittion at this year’s Festival. Mundruczo defines this film as a tale of redemption, a tale of miracles and confirms what the international critic said: the film is a satire on Europe’s antirefugee paranoia. The director also describes how he particularly shot two scenes, a change of gravity one and long sequence of a car chasing another. The heroe’s flying is more of a floating up in the air, as the Bible often describes it.

Jupiter’s Moon: a young immigrant is shot down while illegally crossing the border. Terrified and in shock, wounded Aryan can now mysteriously levitate at will. Thrown into a refugee camp, he is smuggled out by Dr Stern, intent on exploiting his extraordinary secret. Pursued by enraged camp director Laszlo, the fugitives remain on the move in search of safety and money. Inspired by Aryan’s amazing powers, Stern takes a leap of faith in a world where miracles are trafficked for small change…
