After Binoche, award to Cronenberg in San Sebastián

It will be in the 70th edition of the film festival, known as Zinemaldia, full of world stars this year on the occasion of its seven decades of life.

The prolific 79-year-old director summarizes in his filmography different strings, almost always disturbing, such as The Fly, Crash, Crime of the Future, Scanners, Spider and A History of Violence, from a “master of biological horror, of atmospherics disturbing and from a universe as personal as it is non-transferable”, highlighted the organizers.

He can boast of having directed important actors such as Naomi Watts, Geena Davis, Willem Dafoe, Geena Davis, Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, Jeff Goldblum and Martin Sheen.

Crimes of the Future, which competed at the Cannes Film Festival this year, is Zinemaldia’s proposal to close today’s session, with a cast led by Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart.

One of the news that surprised the followers of the meeting in this Basque city was the announcement that the Cuban-Spanish actress Ana de Armas will present the feature film Blonde next Saturday, together with Andrew Dominik, the director of this portrait of Marilyn Monroe from the homonymous novel by Joyce Carol Oates.

Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Knives Out, Wasp Network, No Time To Die), was also at the recent world premiere of the film at the Venice Film Festival.

Previously, the multifaceted Spanish actress Penélope Cruz received the National Film Award, in a participation in the event of the Basque Country, in which she also presented the feature film by Juan Diego Botto “En los margines”.
