Philippine star Jaclyn Jose wins best actress at Cannes

Jaclyn Jose becomes the first Filipina to win the Best Actress award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. The gritty portrayal of a drug-dealing matriarch in a Manila slum made her win the award.

She played a struggling mother in the 2016 movie Rosa, forced to sell drugs in order to make ends meet but who then gets caught in a web of police corruption.

Also British director Ken Loachs film I, Daniel Blake has won the Palme Or at the Film Festival. It was his second award for best picture at the festival after 2006 The Wind That Shakes the Barley.
