Honouring a life less ordinary
Friday, September 27th, 2019

At the press conference he gave before receiving his Donostia award, Donald Sutherland answered questions on his long, prestigious career on stage and screen. He claimed that he didn’t have a favourite director and that all the characters he’s played had given him great joy, although he did confess that it was Fellini that he really loved working with.

He recalled how his decision to become an actor was not from any outside influence but was a deepseated need he had felt, as he had actually never set foot in a theatre at the time, and that originally he had only intended to act on the stage, but that taking the leap into cinema had been a wonderful experience for him. As for social issues, he said that climate change was his great concern, as he was appalled by the situation that he was going to leave his children and grandchildren. He closed the proceedings by sharing the stage briefly with Giuseppe Capotondi, the director of his latest film The Burnt Orange Heresy, which they are presenting at the Festival.
