There was a fiercely political air at France's annual celebration of cinema, Les Césars, yesterday as frustrations were unleashed over the months-long shutdown of theatres.

The country has seen mounting protests in recent days over the closure of cultural sites, with several theatres occupied by activists and students.

That frustration was centre stage at the awards, with actress Corinne Masiero stripping naked with the words "No culture, no future" written across her front as she presented the costume award.
