Brighton Festival, Laurie Anderson on the poetry of Lou Reed, Cannes Film Festival

Film critic Jason Solomons reports from Cannes on the big films, rising stars and talking points at this year's festival.

'Do Angels Need Haircuts?' is a slim volume of Reed's early poems that draws on this recording and other archive material. The artist Laurie Anderson, who was married to Reed and is curating his legacy, talks to John Wilson about Reed's writing life. As the three-week Brighton Festival reaches its half-way point, John visits the coast to try his hand at life drawing in Guest Director David Shrigley's project Life Model II. He meets the members of Three Score Dance who are performing work by Pina Bausch on the seafront and travels to the Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft to meet artist Morag Myerscough and discover the art of former Los Angeles nun and activist Corita Kent.
