Watch: How Were Protests Depicted Through Cannes Over The Years?

The Cannes Film Festival is synonymous with glamour, glitz, movies and all-around entertainment. Most times the festival’s red carpet is the most talked-about event, with people on social media and elsewhere discussing the stars’ various looks and styles.

Being one of the world’s most prominent and well-known film festivals, it is an award ceremony that not only creates controversy but also experiences unprecedented protests and rallies.
