Zelensky addresses Cannes opening ceremony

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky made a speech during a live satellite video call at the opening ceremony of the 75th Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday.

In his speech, Zelensky said the cinema must not stay silent and added that filmmakers have to show that "the cinema is always on the side of freedom."

Zelensky made several war movie references and quoted the famous Charlie Chaplin's final speech in The Great Dictator - "The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people."
