It will now compete with high-profile contenders like Angelina Jolie's "First They Killed My Father" from Cambodia, Michael Haneke's "Happy End" from Austria, Sebastian Lelio's "A Fantastic Woman" from Chile, Robin Campillo's "BPM (Beats Per Minute)" from France, Samuel Maoz's "Foxtrot" from Israel, Joachim Trier's "Thelma" from Norway, and Andrey Zvyagintsev's "Loveless" from Russia.
