CANNES (AFP): Africa’s ‘fragile’ cinema has kept a toe-hold at the Cannes Film Festival, with a veteran Malian director and the first-ever Ethiopian as the continent’s only entries in the official selection. ‘I feel very grateful, lucky and proud to represent this part of the world,’ said Yared Zeleke, 36, whose movie ‘Lamb’ became the first Ethiopian flick selected for the world’s premier film festival. The only other African director among the 50-odd films in the official selection was Souleymane Cisse, a 75-year-old Malian who won the third-place jury prize in 1987 for ‘Yeelan’.
