San Sebastian ajoute de nouveaux films à sa compétition
Enquête sur un scandale d’état de Thierry de Peretti

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

As is customary, the San Sebastián Film Festival continues to drip-feed us information as it firms up the films that will form part of its programme, and it has just announced three eagerly awaited new titles that serve to top off the competition for the Golden Shell at its 69th edition (17-25 September).

One of them is the latest title by seasoned Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou, One Second, which will have the honour of opening the Basque gathering. The movie, described as his own particular tribute to cinema, revolving around a prisoner who escapes from a labour camp in the midst of the Cultural Revolution and who is in search of images of his daughter, whom he hasn’t seen for years, had previously been announced to compete at the 2019 Berlinale, but it was withdrawn from the programme at the last minute for unspecified reasons, although it appeared to be related to the Chinese government’s censorship procedures.

), about a journalistic investigation into a witness of police corruption in the world of drug trafficking, toplined by Roschdy Zem, Pio Marmaï and Vincent Lindon; and the USA’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye, the new opus by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick), starring Andrew Garfield and Jessica Chastain.

Previously, the festival also unveiled the selection of the Zabaltegi-Tabakalera parallel sidebar, which brings together the choicest arthouse cinema from this year, with daring titles that have already passed through various other festivals, as well as the films chosen to form part of the RTVE Galas (Mediterráneo [+lire aussi :

, a movie that details the founding of the NGO Open Arms, helmed by Marcel Barrena and starring Eduard Fernández, Dani Rovira and Anna Castillo; and Once Upon a Time in Euskadi, the feature debut by director Manu Gómez).

Lastly, the Horizontes Latinos selection will bring together ten films directed by filmmakers from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Switzerland, Uruguay and Venezuela, including five movies that passed through the festival’s Latin American work-in-progress strand, three feature debuts and the return of distinguished names such as Paz Fábrega, Alonso Ruizpalacios and Lorenzo Vigas to this section (read more here). It is also worth noting that the Perlak section will screen 15 films that were previously on the line-ups of festivals of the likes of Cannes, Venice and Berlin. Highly acclaimed auteurs such as Ryusuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car), Todd Haynes (The Velvet Underground), François Ozon (Everything Went Fine [+lire aussi :
