Netflix film Okja booed at Cannes Film Festival

NET15 Okja is produced by Netflix, which has been a controversial brand at Cannes

A screening at the Cannes Film Festival had to be stopped after the film was booed in its first few minutes.

Okja, starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, has been controversial because producer Netflix has refused to screen it in French cinemas.

The audience booed the Netflix logo, which appeared before the film started, and it then became clear the film was playing in the wrong aspect ratio.

Some film journalists in the screening uploaded videos of the heckling on social media.
