Last year, San Sebastian performed a small miracle in September, hosting a safe on-site festival in Spain as the second wave COVID-19. This year, site attendance will increase, although travel problems in Latin America, the United States and Asia, caution and cost will prevent a complete presence.
That said, this year’s festival, running September 17-25, will feature all-cylinder shots হিসাবে as a Spanish-language cinema emporium, a new talent center and launchpad for the local Basque industry. Following, seven Spanish-speaking world events took place:
Star Power: Cruz, Banderas, Bardem, Depp, Cotillard and Chesten?
Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas are expected to have the Spanish premiere of “Official Competition” and the world premiere of Javier Bardem’s “The Good Boss”. Despite some opposition, Johnny Depp will receive the career-winning Donostia Award, less controversially, Marion Cotillard. Festival organizer Jessica Chestine hopes to be the only U.S. film to compete in the main competition in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.” The stars in the huge crowd love San Sebastian. Their 2021 presence will be selected, but still strong.
Type: New Revolution
Lucille Hadjihalilovic, another French female genre writer, is one of San Sebastian’s most anticipated titles, following the Cannes winner “Titan”, “Yarwig”. Jose Luis Rebardinos, director of the San Sebastian Festival, said he would expect more wow from female horror directors later this year. But there is another revolution in making. San Sebastian used a straight arrowhouse. Now, “Earwig” and “La Abuela,” a classic horror drama, both compete on screen. China’s “Fire on the Plain,” another Golden Shell contestant, is out of a thriller, such as “The Daughter” contest. “It’s not so much that writers want to make genre movies now, but rather that they want to tell stories and use genre to achieve it,” Rebardinos said. Jenner’s composer films are poised to revolutionize the former Earthhouse scene in Europe.
There’s good talk about the first feature of the two contests, from both women: Dan T. Lindenberg’s “Come in Heaven”, a woman-centered adventure piece made with a modern eye; And Romanian Alain Gregor’s “Blue Moon” is a sturdy portrait of toxic masculinity সেক্স sexist, authoritarian, violent, self-pitying ীতে in a shady modern day hotel group. Among the new directors are Mar Paceio’s buzzing headline in “That Weekend”, a Western mother-daughter drama; “Josephine,” from Javier Marco of Spain, a prison-set romantic drama with a fantasy series, starring “Julieter” Emma Suarez; And “The Rust” from Juan Sebastian Mesa of Colombia, criticizing the weakness and destructive collapse of the rural economy.
When San Sebastian announced the Donostia Award for “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, it caused an international uproar. Why reward a man, critics ask, who lost a defamation suit against UK tabloid The Sun for calling him a female watchman? Depp was not arrested, charged or convicted of gender-based violence, San Sebastian responded, reminding critics that it had always fought against “discrimination.” It will now (H) form teams with the Basque Association of Women in the Amen, Audiovisual Sector and the Natural Industry, hosting a festival workshop on gender equality and the Depp Debate. “There was a division between people and groups that, in my opinion, shared common goals,” said Rebardinos. Hope to have more gender initiatives in the future.
Movister Plus: Upcoming the Ant in the film and television series
The second awaited San Sebastian title is not even a movie, but rather a six-part series “La Fortuna” produced by Monster Plus, AMC Studios and Mode starring Stanley Tuchi and “The Wars” Clark Peter. This is the first TV series by Alejandro Amenabar, director of “The Others”. A good comedy adventure-thriller spread across the United States and Spain and past and present, “La Fortuna” is the largest international co-production in Spanish history. The San Sebastian world premiere of “La Fortuner” comes just weeks after the unveiling of the movie Plus “Alberto Rodriguez’s” Modello 77 “. Now the big question is whether Moviester Plus will go ahead with the production of movies with the same intensity that it has shown with the drama series.
Local protagonist: Strong San Sebastian presence in Spain
Fighting fears that a new subsidy system would wipe out domestic filmmaking, San Sebastian boasts the presence of the strongest official selection of Spanish films by 2021: seven titles, four in the main competition and the “official competition” split directly from its Venice premiere.
But what’s really surprising about this year’s Spanish film lineup is the film’s shared high production standards and their marked diversity, says Rebardinos. It can be seen in the contestants. He said the post-Basque conflict reunion drama “Maxable” by ICAR Boline was “publicly political”. Weighing in as Fernando Leon de Aranoa’s “The Good Boss” work comedy, Paco Plaza “La Abuela” seems much more mainstream, but the story of two nightmare relatives. A fiction-doc hybrid, Jonas Truber’s “Queen Low Impaid” admires Madrid’s millennial vision and qualities.
Hot Ticket Project
Launched in 2012, San Sebastian’s Europe-Latin America Co-
The production forum has quickly integrated into the festival’s art center, creating the latest projects from many of the hottest earthhouse directors and producers in Latin America. This year is no exception: Hernan Musalupi supports Argentina’s Paula Hernandez (“Slipwalkers”) and Chile’s Story Board and Sebastian Lelio Christian Leighton’s “El Vivanto ki Arrasa” from “El Porveni de la Mirada”. Brazil’s Desvia Prodako is followed by Johnny Ma’s “Chin-Gon”, “Alemania” by Taria Fina, and Pasto and Gema Films’ “La Susien”. Argentina’s new movie icon Diego Dubkovsky has created Romina Paula’s “People by Night”. This is a strong lineup. Many of these titles, in a few years, expect to play major festivals.
