Where established filmmakers rub shoulders with upand-coming talent
Friday, September 20th, 2019

Perlak is the Festival’s traditional showcase for the best films of the year that have not yet released in Spain but have been critically acclaimed or won awards at other international festivals. This year the section once welcomes back some prestigious directors whose first films received awards at the Festival. These include Bong Joon-ho with Parasites, which won the Golden Palm at Cannes, and Hirokazu Kore-Eda, a regular visitor to San Sebastian, who was presented with a Donostia Award last year. This time around he is presenting La Verité, his first film shot outside Japan, starring Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche and Ethan Hawke. 

Alongside films by other prestigious filmmakers such as Ciro Guerra whose Waiting for the Barbarians is his first English language project, Perlak also is also screening work by acclaimed newcomers like Ladj Ly who won the Jury Prize at Cannes with Les Misérables and Céline Sciamma , best screenplay at the Directors’ Fortnight for Portrait de la jeune fille en feu. 

The selection also contains the latest films by some of the great names in contemporary cinema – Ken Loach, Steven Soderbergh and will be opened by Kristen Stewart, the star of Seberg.
