Cannes Director Accused of Throwing Cell Phone at French Actor Judith Chemla

French actor Judith Chemla will not attend the world premiere of the film “Mes freres et moi” at Cannes after an alleged incident involving the director of her film throwing a cell phone at her, 

Chemla filed a complaint on July 4 against Yohan Manca, the director of “Mes freres et moi,” who is also her boyfriend. The alleged assault took place on July 3 in the street in Paris.

She is alleging Manca, of throwing a cell phone at her face. The couple was having an argument and Manca became very violent. They’ve been dating for five years and have a daughter.

Manca has also canceled his plans to attend the premiere; he’s currently in Paris watching over his daughter, while Chemla is at the Avignon Festival where she will be delivering a musical performance onstage.

The film marks the feature debut for Manca, who is also an actor.
