The winner of the Cannes Camera d’Or prize for best first film, Divines, is headed to Netflix. The female-led drama about a young girl trying to make it in the projects, is directed by Houda Benyamina — who also nabbed the unofficial crown for the longest Cannes acceptance speech ever last month. Divines will be available on the streaming service everywhere except France where Diaphana is releasing theatrically and films have to wait 36 months before becoming available via SVOD. Netflix also picked up Directors’ Fortnight pics Mercenaire by Sacha Wolff, and Raman Raghav 2.0, an Indian thriller by Anurag Kashyap. On Monday, Netflix announced a deal with Kashyap’s production company, Phantom Films, to make its first Indian TV series, Sacred Games.
