Prince’s untimely death struck a chord of sadness and shock all over the world. A rep from the Cannes Film Festival confirms to Variety that they will be paying homage to the late pop culture icon.
Details on the tribute will be released soon.
Prince was especially admired in France. Maybe because his film Under the Cherry Moon was filmed in the French Riviera at La Victorine Studios in Nice. In the movie, Prince stars as a gigolo who swindled French women. He also made his directorial debut with it.
Prince conquered almost every field of entertainment, and for that he will be truly missed. RIP to the legend.
