San Sebastian's Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award Winners: Gregory Peck, Catherine Deneuve, Julia Roberts

12 August 2011 1:58 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Five-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close will receive the Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award at the 59th edition of the San Sebastian Film Festival. Why is the award called Donostia? Because that's the Basque name of the coastal town of San Sebastian, located in northern Spain's Basque Country. The first recipient of the Donostia Award was Hollywood veteran Gregory Peck (right) at the 1986 festival. Of the more than 40 actors and actresses (sometimes actor-filmmakers) who have received the award, a mere 8 have been non-Hollywood celebrities: Jeanne Moreau, Catherine Deneuve, Max von Sydow, Isabelle Huppert, Vittorio Gassman, Liv Ullmann, and Spaniards Francisco Rabal and (Peruvian-born) Fernando Fernán Gómez. Spaniard and Donostia winner Antonio Banderas has had a lengthy Hollywood career — even if nothing to match the prestige of his films for Pedro Almodóvar — and so have British winners like Ian McKellen, Jeremy Irons, and Michael Caine. Below is the full list of Donostia Lifetime »

Barbican Film: Michelangelo Antonioni Directorspective

15 February 2011 11:31 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

The highlight of the Barbican’s Michelangelo Antonioni Directorspective have arguably been the screenings of L’avventura (1960) and La notte (1961), the first two films of what has been described by critic Philip French as the “The Antonioni Walk,” an unofficial, loose trilogy of modernist films that explore the existential crisis of rich, beautiful characters who are bored with their lives.

On the 20 February at 4.00pm the Barbican will screen the final chapter in the trilogy, L’eclisse (1964). These three films, although often termed as a trilogy, are not linked by plot but rather by the theme of the banality and pointlessness of human existence. This is typical of Antonioni, who described his films as follows:

“I never discuss the plots of my films. I never release a synopsis before I begin shooting. How could I? Until the film is edited, I have no idea myself what it will be about. »
