Tim Chey showed his most recent movie, “20 Minutes,” at Cannes. The director showed the movie to distributors from Germany, France, Japan, and China at a packed screening.
Chey says, “I think it’s a huge blessing that I can fly here and show the movie.” He laughs, “I guess I’m the only one showing a religious film here.” The movie “20 Minutes” is about what happens to twelve different people when they find out they only have twenty minutes to live because of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii. In the movie, there is a strong Republican, a liberal Democrat, an atheist, a believer, a Japanese billionaire, and a Native Hawaiian. As the missile gets closer, all these people are looking for a safe place to hide.

Chey says, “The movie asks the most important question: What would I do if I only had twenty minutes to live?”
People worldwide were interested in the movie because it was written about in the magazines Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and Screen International. Also, a lot of good things were said about the movie.
They said, “I met a person on a super-sized boat at Cannes,” which is how she knew the man. We were told, “He went to the movie with six of his friends.” Even though I told him it was a religious event, he still went and took part. There is a strong need for information about God in our modern world.
After the ballistic missile alert for Hawaii in 2018, which caused many people to freak out and think about the afterlife, “20 Minutes” came out. The false alarm was reported worldwide, including on the front pages of BBC, Yahoo, CNN, and Fox News, among other major news outlets.
Chey explains, “When I was younger, I didn’t believe in anything, but as I got older, I changed my mind.” I know what both sides think, and there are people from both sides here. They each have twenty minutes to live.
Chey, who was in Hawaii when a false missile alert hit 1.5 million cell phones and caused panic across the state, says, “It’s amazing to see how unimportant politics and race become as we get closer to death.” “As we get closer to death, it’s amazing to see how unimportant politics and race become.”
“Freedom,” which was shot on the Amistad, starred Cuba Gooding Jr., William Sadler, and Sharon Leal. “David and Goliath,” shot in North Africa and London, was also produced by Timothy Chey. Besides that, he directed and produced the Sony Pictures movie Slamma Jamma (Michael Irvin, Chris Staples).
Cannes is a beautiful city in France that is known for many things, such as its calm landscape, architectural wonders, lakes, museums, and annual film festival.
The International Film Festival was the old name for the Cannes Film Festival. In 2002, the festival decided to share its name with the city. This helped the city’s reputation become much better known. The Cannes Film Festival has grown to become one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. Every year, film directors, film critics, actors, and other people who work in the film industry are invited to an event where they can watch movies. The Palme d’Or, the highest award at the festival, is given by a special jury of well-known film critics and filmmakers worldwide.
