Jay Z & the Grand Prix

Very little Cannes coverage here at BrandDNA because if truth be told I'm well and truly over the whole global awards thing. Gimme a proper local ad club awards any day.

Anyway one big winner to emerge in the south of France last week was Jay Z of all people. He picked up the Entertainment Grand Prix for this wonderful little film / music video about his mother and her struggles to hide her lesbianism.

Not what I'd expect to see at Cannes. And definitely not what I'd expect to see picking up a Grand Prix. But a fine little film about a much less enlightened yet funkier time.
