CANNES, France (AFP) - Two films inspired by the missing Malaysian Airlines’ flight MH370 are being touted to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival, barely two months after the plane vanished with 239 people on board.

Potential buyers will get a sneak preview of “A Dark Reflection” by Fact Not Fiction Films at a “screening” on Monday, according to a full page advertisement in industry trade journal The Hollywood Reporter.

“What Happened on Flight 313?” reads the advertisement which appeared on Sunday and shows a woman silhouetted at the end of a runway.

The runway lights glow behind her while overhead a passenger jet looms in the darkness lit by two harsh white lights.
