San Sebastian aggiunge sei titoli al concorso per la Conchiglia d'oro
Le Successeur di Xavier Legrand

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Just a few weeks after the first batch of non-Spanish titles was announced for the selection – one of the strongest clutches of recent editions (which included films by Cristi Puiu, Joachim Lafosse and Robin Campillo – see the news) – the San Sebastián Film Festival continues to surprise us with its top-notch programme. The gathering headed up by José Luis Rebordinos has just announced the new titles that have been added to the competition for the Golden Shell at its 71st edition, and standing out among them are opuses by France’s Xavier Legrand, Denmark’s Isabella Eklöf and Australia’s Kitty Green, as well as the leap to a US production by Greece’s Christos Nikou.
