On Friday, a film set in the working-class districts of the northern French city of Boulogne-sur-Mer won the top prize in the Cannes Film Festival’s “Un Certain Regard” competition.

Lise Akoka and Romane Gueret’s film “The Worst Ones” tackles the difficulties of street casting by narrating the story of a community’s reaction to the presence of a film team.

“I hope that this film, beyond reviews, will be read as an homage to the creation of cinema because sometimes it allows us to give a voice to those who are not often heard,” Gueret said.

Deadline described the film, with events that are “thought-provoking and sometimes darkly funny”, as “a fascinating look at the filming experience.”

“Joyland”, a film by Saim Sadiq that seeks to break gender stereotypes in Pakistan, the country’s first entry to the Cannes Film Festival, won the jury prize.

The film’s screening at Cannes felt like “a dream has come true”, one of its stars, Sarwat Gilani, told Reuters on Tuesday, adding that she felt “the struggles that we face as artists in Pakistan, they’ve all come to be worth it.”
