Guillermo del Toro and Gael García Bernal Sing Ranchera Duet on Cannes Stage

The 2022 Cannes Film Festival is an especially important one, as the world-renowned showcase of the year’s best new films celebrates its 75th anniversary.

In honor of that achievement, Cannes held a special ceremony at the Grand Theater Lumière, filled with a star-studded audience that included Jake Gyllenhaal, Kristen Stewart, Nicolas Winding Refn, Isabelle Huppert, Viggo Mortensen and more.

Compatriotas director Guillermo del Toro and actor Gael García Bernal were seen singing “Ella,” a classic ranchera tune by José Alfredo Jiménez.
