Screening of world premiere stopped after sustained heckling
The Cannes Film Festival stopped the world premiere screening of the Netflix movie Okja after five minutes after sustained heckling from the audience.
Okja, starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, is one of the hottest movies at this year's festival but controversial because US video-on-demand company Netflix has refused to screen it in French cinemas.
Without explanation, the movie was restarted from the beginning shortly afterwards. The audience booed the Netflix logo when it appeared on screen but then settled down.
