- Lars Von Trier's comments at the Wednesday press conference for 'Melancholia,' in which he joked about sympathizing with Hitler and possibly being a Nazi, racked up even more controversy today. The Cannes Board of Directors declared Von Trier a "Persona Non Grata," meaning he is unable to physically collect any awards for his film, and his future with the festival is in question. Von Trier could also face legal action from France, where anti-Semitic remarks can lead to six months in prison or a €22,500 fine. indieWIRE reported on the latest development in this scandal.
