The Cannes Film Festival has added yet another title to the official selection with Bernard-Henri Levy’s The Oath Of Tobruk set to unspool May 25. The special screening is philosopher Levy’s look at the conflict in Libya which put an end to the rule of Muammar Gaddafi. The film “illustrates how ideas and convictions can alter the course of history in the form of a political and humanitarian intervention that had heretofore seemed unthinkable,” according to the festival.
