Docs: Todd Haynes Brings “The Velvet Underground” to the Croisette

In his new documentary, The Velvet Underground, the quintessentially indie filmmaker Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven, Carol) tells the story of the legendary, seminal rock 'n' roll band, led by Lou Reed and John Cale, by situating their work in the broader cultural contexts of New York City of the 1960s.   The feature world-premiered out of competition at this year’s Cannes Fest, ahead of its October 15 release by Amazon in select theaters, and later on Apple TV+.
