A prolific career spanning five decades
Friday, September 27th, 2019

Introduced as “a legend of cinema,” Donald Sutherland received the second of this year’s Donostia Awards last night at a ceremony that paid tribute to a prolific career spanning five decades.

After an overview of his acting curriculum that has included such classics as Robert Altman’s M.A.S.H; Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1900; Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now; Robert Redford’s Ordinary People; and Federico Fellini’s Casanova, the director of the Festival, José Luis Rebordinos presented the Canadian actor with the award. The audience in the Kursaal gave him a standing ovation as he said, “It is such a pleasure to be in the Basque Country. I have long honoured and admired and watched you and have great joy to be with you tonight. It’s a great honour for me and I’m delighted. Mila esker, Euskal Herria.”

The gala was immediately followed by a screening of The Burnt Orange Heresy. Its director, Giuseppe Capotondi, presented this thriller in which Sutherland appears alongside Claes Bang, Elizabeth Debicki and Mick Jagger.
