Clown-faced politicians and cinema mix at Nice Carnival

Colourful caricatures of Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump will join Harvey Weinstein and an emotional Charlie Chaplin when the Nice Carnival lights up the Cote d’Azur later this month.The carnival, held in the Mediterranean city since 1873, runs from Feb. 16 until March 2 this year with the theme “King of Cinema”. It will honour the 100th anniversary of Victorine Studios, a mainstay of the film industry in the south of France.Artists and sculptors have been toiling for weeks to build and decorate the giant figures that will adorn dozens of colourful floats and bring the city’s streets life during three weekends of parades.From Macron dressed as Captain America leading a band of “super zeroes” to a towering Harvey Weinstein looming over a Hollywood actress, few escape ridicule.Alongside Trump and Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un are cast as cackling or alarming-looking clowns.
