Barbara Albert, Ziad Doueiri, François Ozon, Carlos Sorin and Emily Tang are competing in the Official Section at the 60th San Sebastián Film Festival
08 / 02 / 2012

The San Sebastián International Film Festival will once again become the meeting point for some prestigious international directors who will be presenting their latest films. Directors from Austria, Lebanon, France, Argentina and China will be coming together at the Festival to compete for the Golden Shell. The remaining films that make up the Official Section will be announced shortly.


ALL APOLOGIES by Emily Tang (China)
The third film by Chinese director Emily Tang. After his son died in an accident, Cheng approached the wife of the driver responsible and asked to be given another child. Amongst court's order, medical bill and Cheng's wife terrorising behaviour, Yu faces the paradoxes of an immoral decision.
 

THE ATTACK by Ziad Doueiri (Lebanon-France-Qatar-Belgium)
The third film by the Lebanese director Zaid Doueiri (Lila says) is an adaptation of the international best seller by Yasmina Khadra, published in France in 2006 and translated into more than forty languages. The film focuses on the moral dilemma faced by an Arab-Israeli surgeon when the police inform him that his wife has carried out a suicide bombing that has killed nineteen people.
 

DANS LA MAISON (IN THE HOUSE) by François Ozon (France)
The French filmmaker François Ozon, who already competed in the Official Section of the Festival in 2000 with Sous le sable (Under the Sand) and in 2009 with Le refuge, is back with a film about the relationship between a teacher and one of his students, in a clever game in which the lines between reality and fiction become blurred and you cannot tell what dark purposes the youngster is concealing or how far his scheming will go.
 

DÍAS DE PESCA (FISHING DAYS) by Carlos Sorin (Argentina)
For the fith time, the Argentine Carlos Sorin is taking part in the Official Section of the Festival, after having competed with Eversmile New Jersey in 1989, Historias mínimas (Special Jury Award at the 50th Film Festival in 2002), Bombón, el perro (FIPRESCI Award 2004) and El camino de San Diego (Special Jury Award at the 54th Festival in 2006). His latest film features Marco, a fifty-year-old ex- alcoholic who is advised to find a hobby to dry out: he chooses fishing in a small village in Patagonia, which just happens to be where his daughter lives, who he hasn’t seen in years.
 

DIE LEBENDEN / THE DEAD AND THE LIVING by Barbara Albert (Austria-Poland-Germany)
One of the most prestigious Austrian filmmakers, Barbara Albert (Nordrand, Fallen), tells the story of a journey into the past of the II World War and into the abyss of contemporary European society through the life of young 25-year-old Sita, a journey that leads her from Berlin to Vienna, and from Warsaw to Rumania in a film about loss, self-discovery and identity.
