The line up of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival was unveiled on Thursday, with veteran directors Terrence Malick and Ken Loach set to present new films.

The world of cinema heads to the Riviera from May 14-25 this year, for a festival, which director Thierry Fremaux promises will be "very political".
