Ruben Ostlund’s social satire “Triangle of Sadness” has won the Palme d’Or at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, handing Ostlund one of cinema’s most prestigious prizes for the second time.
Cannes also named Korean star Song Kang Ho best actor for his performance in Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s film “Broker,” about a Korean family seeking a home for an abandoned baby.
Best actress went to Zar Amir Ebrahimi for her performance as a journalist in Ali Abbasi’s “Holy Spider,” a true-crime thriller about a serial killer targeting sex workers in Iran.
This year’s award for best first film went to Riley Keough and Gina Gammell for “War Pony,” a drama about the Pine Ridge Reservation made with Oglala Lakota and Sicangu Lakota citizens.
