"Sean Penn used his clout as head of the Cannes Film Festival jury to issue a presidential proclamation: See this documentary.
Penn's pick, added to the festival roster at his special request, is a low-budget documentary filmed by volunteers who went to Sri Lanka to help victims of the 2004 tsunami.

'In lieu of the fact that governments don't seem to be able to help us, this gives you a textbook notion of how we can help ourselves,' Penn said."
My God, Sean Penn has become a conservative!
