May 1968 & Cannes

In May 1968, Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski attended the Cannes Film Festival. It was during this year that as a result of the protest movement in France (May 1968) the Festival was cancelled just 8 days after it had begun. Polanski was one of the jury's members, and like other directors such as Godard, Truffaut, and Malle supported the Festival's cancellation as an act of solidarity with the protests.

Below we have a photo of the Polanski's after a film screening days before the Festival ended suddenly.
